Comparison of Face-to-face and Online Computer Science Education in High School

Author: Petr Coufal

Abstract: This study focuses on the analysis of regular face-to-face computer science instruction with online instruction in high school. Given the modernization of conventional teaching in schools, it would be a good idea to keep some elements of online teaching and allow students to learn remotely. What are the benefits of online learning on the development of students and their competencies? As part of the research investigation, we experimented with and compared the learning achievement of two groups of students in the subject of computer science. The first group was taught normally full-time at school, while the second group was taught online at home. As part of the research investigation, we compared their academic achievement in different areas of computer science and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics), ranging from programming to working with robots. The results of the published research do not confirm statistical differences between online and face-to-face teaching. It follows that the different form of teaching does not affect the development and evaluation of the student and his academic achievements.
