The need to learn programming to solve many complex problems facing humankind necessitated this study. The purpose of the study was to collect information about students’ perceptions and experiences after exposure to the think-pair-share programming strategy. The sample consisted of 12 senior secondary school two students offering computer studies in Ijebu zone, Ogun State, Nigeria purposively selected from the two experimental groups. The data were collected through one-on-one in-depth interviews of the respondents using a Student Interview Guide (SIG). The data analysis was through thematic content analysis procedure. The study found that the respondents perceived the think-pair-share programming strategy helpful to learn programming concepts with or without computers. The study also found that the use of computer was more useful for the acquisition of programming skills than without the use of computers. Moreover, the study found that programming without computers was perceived to improve thinking. Therefore, the study argued that teachers should adopt the use of think-pair-share programming strategy for learning how to write programs notwithstanding the availability of computers due to its ability to aid knowledge retention.

The development of technology today has a huge impact on education, especially in the learning process. Therefore, an educator must be able to adapt the learning process to technological developments. One way to apply technology development in learning systems is to use e-modules in the learning process. The purpose of this study is to use guided inquiry-based e-modules to see the magnitude of the increase in students' critical thinking skills in the material reaction rate after using guided inquiry-based e-modules. The research method used a quasy experiment with a pretest-postest design using two classes as the experimental class and the control class. The sample in this study were students of State Senior High School (SMAN) 1 Sebrida Indragiri Hulu class XI. The results obtained were an increase in students' critical thinking abilities from before the use of guided inquiry-based e-modules. After the use of e-module based guided inquiry. This increase is seen from the comparison between the experimental class and the control cash class. The experimental class using e-module has a higher critical thinking ability of students than the control class that does not use e-module in the learning process.
