There are so many teaching methods that it is difficult to keep up with them all. While there is an extensive range of standard reference works for most educational subjects containing overviews of the related methods, there is as yet no such work for computer science education in either the German-language or English-language literature addressing the application of teaching methods for school. This article is intended as a contribution toward closing that gap to the extent that it provides an overview of the available literature on computer science education teaching methods.

Keywords: computer science education; teaching tools; teaching methods
