Practitioner Integration in Computational Thinking Education

  1. 1. Practitioner Integration in Computational Thinking Education.
  2. 2. Big Picture
  3. 3. How can outside expertise best be integrated into formal Computational Thinking education? What lessons can be improved upon by a small scale experimental setting?
  4. 4. What is Computational Thinking?
  5. 5. “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.
  6. 6. 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.
  7. 7. Waidhofen an der Thaya
  8. 8. Research Design
  9. 9. Idea and Framework
  10. 10. Outcomes and lessons learned
  11. 11. Conclusions and Future Work
  12. 12. Balance between freedom and structure is the key to creative learning. - Mitchel Resnick
