|Abstract:||Educators aspire to transfer of learning as a goal of their teaching. Expansive Framing and Preparation for Future Learning (PFL) are new perspectives on how to foster and assess transfer. As computing education makes its way into K-12 schools, efforts are underway to introduce children to programming in block-based environments like Scratch and Alice. This paper reports on a design-based research in progress that employs ideas of Expansive Framing and PFL to pedagogy and assessments in a middle school introductory CS curriculum that uses Scratch, and includes designed measures for evaluating how well it prepares students for success in future computing experiences with text-based programming.|
