Strategy & Planning
We will prepare three tools for teachers who are interested in using computational thinking (CT) in remote teaching and in acquiring the skills to develop lessons using CT. 1. Handbook. 2. Training Kit. 3. Didactic materials.MORE ...
Implementation of CT for online education
- goal setting, - developing a model - preparation of training material - preparation of a set of lesson plans - testing and development, - maintenance.MORE ...
Benefits of teaching with Computational Thinking.
There are three main reasons educators of all grades should use CT. First, it helps students to cope with almost any problem providing them with a step-to-step procedure in order to reach to an end solution, through a variety of disciplines. Second, it exhibits the strength of computer technology and finally complements and enhances existing school curriculum (Waterman, Goldsmith, Pasquale, 2019).MORE ...
What are the components of Computational Thinking?
Decomposition: breaking down a complex problem into smaller parts that are more controllable and easier to understand, or solving.
Pattern recognition: identifying similarities between and within problems and other practices.
Abstraction: focusing only on important information, and drawing out specific differences to make one solution work for many problems
Algorithms: developing a step-by-step solution to the problem
The underlying idea in computational thinking is developing models and simulations of problems that one is trying to study and solve.

Developing algorithmic thinking is no longer enough. suffice. We have reached a point where we need to develop thinking "involving thinking at many levels of abstraction inherent in with computer science and its methods".
