Abstract

We describe an initial pedagogy for an introductory computing and programming course which adheres to the object-oriented paradigm. Students must satisfy a prerequisite to be competent users of GUI operating systems and simple applications. The paper explains how their prior knowledge and skills are used to consider abstract object-oriented models of the systems they know before embarking on Smalltalk programming. A novel programming and learning environment which constrains visibility of Smalltalk is described.
