The classification of programming as an art brings the importance of creativity as a requirement to become an effective programmer. However, the learning and teaching of programming subjects have been widely perceived to be difficult.

This research investigates the use of a simulator for learning and teaching of programming topics with a specific focus on the embodiment of student engagement and disciplinary pedagogies.
