PECC Model: for Playing, Engagement, Creativity and Creating

Taking cues from the findings from the NOLB evaluations, a new course model — the PECC model — has been developed using four key fields which have been considered as important for such activities, and further intrinsic and extrinsic  motivators. The model considers aspects of Playing, Engagement, Creativity, and Creation for an inclusive coding learning environment. These fields are abstracted into an integrated model that provides teachers or facilitators with important elements.
