Abstract—Answers to the questions of which teaching
methods are suitable for school and should be applied in
teaching individual subjects and also how teaching methods
support them act of learning represent challenges to general
education and education in individual subjects. This study
focuses on teaching methods for computer science education
with respect to significant learning theories. Using an expert
survey, subjects rated the importance of behavioristic,
cognitivist and constructivist learning theories for 20 teaching
methods. The result of the study makes it clear that the
importance of learning theories for certain teaching methods in
computer science education is different. Teaching methods can
be assigned to learning theories and can benefit from the
empirical findings of the learning theories. Moreover, the result
is an important contribution to the development of a theory of
teaching methods for computer science education, which is still
