“CT is the process of recognizing aspects of
computation in the world that surrounds us and
applying tools and techniques from computing
to understand and reason about natural, social,
and artificial systems and processes. It allows
pupils to tackle problems, to break them down
into solvable chunks, and to devise algorithms
to solve them.”
- Csizmadia et al.
understand which aspects of a problem can be solved with a tool,
evaluate if a specific tool can solve a problem,
understand the limitations of computational tools,
adapt a computational tool to a new use,
recognize new ways to use tools, and
apply computational strategies in any domain.
Balance between freedom and structure
is the key to creative learning.
