|dc.description.abstract||With the rapid development of technology and an increasing demand for a skilled
workforce in computers, many companies and organisations were created in order to
promote and assist the process of teaching computer related sciences. In the UK, a
new subject named Computing was introduced on the national curriculum for Primary
schools replacing Information and Communication Technologies (ICT).
This project is about the development of a computer game that assists the development
of logical programming skills in primary school age children to help Primary
Schools and teachers in the process of teaching the new subject introduced.
The game was developed using the waterfall methodology and used quantitative
and qualitative data in order to analyse the efficiency of the game on developing logical
programming skills and the satisfaction of the users. The game was tested in a
local school with children of 8 to 9 years old, and successfully fulfilled its aim.||en_US
