Computer Science is simultaneously a theoretical, experimental and technological discipline with inherent cultural, social, legal and ethical issues that affect life socially and financially. Computer Science also has a significant impact on the teaching and learning of all educational subjects as has been acknowledged by many researchers. Therefore the introduction of new information and communication technologies as a learning tool has become necessary in all educational subjects as well as in all education levels while the study of computer science supports students in their social integration and their university studies. As Computer Science can be viewed from this multi-dimensional perspective the educational approaches to its teaching and learning emancipate its different dimensions. The objective of this workshop is the closer examination and the discussion of different subjects of Computer Science Education in the framework of this multi dimensional perspective as well as their connection with different methodologies concerning the didactics of Informatics and the use of computer as a learning tool.
