Abstract

Promoting knowledge sharing among students using Pair Programming (PP) is the main focus of this study.PP that pairs a driver and a navigator is expected to improve student’s social skills to work creatively and innovatively in resolving difficulties in programming.Based on that this study employs PP in advancing the programming skills among students of higher learning institutions.Beyond PP, this study integrates the solution with Socialization, Externalization, Combination and Internalization (SECI) Model.The main objective is to investigate the relationships between each of the four stages in SECI Model and code quality.A group of students were paired and assigned a task. Several benefits of PP have been discovered based on performance statistic. Obviously, the code quality is improved as a result of knowledge sharing, transfer process and communication between the pair.In the end, it is found that externalization has no significant relationship with code quality as opposed to the others.Meanwhile, internalization is the most influential stage.
