From computing to computational thinking: Encouraging creative approaches to problem-solving across the curriculum
26 JANUARY, 2017 15:50 - 16:10
Computational thinking is a problem-solving process that involves looking at possible solutions abstractly and algorithmically, in a series of ordered steps. People who are able to think in this way tend to be good at generalizing and transferring this problem-solving process to a wide variety of problems. Computational thinking has been hailed as having the potential to foster a new culture of learning in which creativity is rewarded and people are encouraged to experiment, so how can you introduce it in your lessons?
