Presentation for the NAWI Conference

  1. 1. Successful Teaching UsingComputational Thinking viaScenario Based LearningChuck Winer, Professor, Computer Information Technology and GraphicsAnastasia Trekles, Clinical Associate Professor, Instructional TechnologyJennifer Werner, Adjunct Professor of Computer Information Technologyand Instructional Designer, Community Healthcare SystemsPurdue University CalumetHammond, IN
  2. 2. Objectives Explain the concepts of Computational Thinking andScenario Based Learning as powerful tools for supportingauthentic student learning Discuss the benefits to serving as a Subject Matter Expert toclassrooms employing scenarios Demonstrate how teachers and businesses can worktogether to bolster important critical thinking and problem-solving skills in students Share the research produced from the ASSECT NSF grant,including a Google Sites template and ComputationalThinking rubric
  3. 3. Background NSF grant project (ASSECT: Advancing the Successful ITStudent Through Enhanced Computational Thinking) Partnership of universities in five regions Marriage of Jeanette Wing’s Computational Thinking (CT)with a framework for building instructional elements Focus on Scenario-Based Learning (SBL) combined with CTto help teachers deliver engaging lessons that help studentsdevelop important critical thinking skills within authenticcareer-oriented situations
  4. 4. What exactly is ComputationalThinking? A problem-solving process A way of dealing with complexity A method of using available tools, including technology, inlogical ways to solve problems and answer questions ISTE’s definition:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VFcUgSYyRPg&feature=youtu.be Jeanette Wing’s description: http://youtu.be/C2Pq4N-iE4I
  5. 5. Problem-Based Learning Scenario-Based LearningPBL vs. SBL Project or problem is oftenalready defined for thestudent Solution may involve aparticular “right answer” Teacher guides studentstoward the right answers Project may be contrived ornot based on real situations Exact problem details notgiven; students define theproblem There is not necessarily aright answer Teacher serves purely as afacilitator and co-learner Project involves real outsideexperts and situations
  6. 6. Examples of SBL/CT Scenarios Our list research-based scenarios can be found athttps://sites.google.com/site/workshopctandsblresourcesite/sharing-our-research-experience Experiential Learning Center: http://learnpbl.com Computer Science Teachers Association:http://csta.acm.org/Resources/sub/ResourceFiles/CompThinking.pdf Examples from Ross Smith, a teacher trained in ourworkshops: http://whoreallydiscoveredamerica.weebly.com https://sites.google.com/a/hammondacademy.org/middle-ages-project/ https://sites.google.com/a/hammondacademy.org/standard-of-living2/
  7. 7. The CT Rubric Helps to assess computational thinking skills, includinglogical thinking, strategizing, abstract thinking, proceduralthinking, and optimizing https://sites.google.com/site/workshopctandsblresourcesite/computational-thinking-rubric
