Computational Thinking is the latest buzz word in education. You may have heard about the four pillars — problem decomposition, pattern recognition, abstraction, and algorithmic thinking.
While these four pillars can be implemented as isolated skills across disciplines, the power of the CT process is when we use clearly identified datasets to solve a problem. These datasets, along with pattern recognition and abstraction, can be used to create algorithms.
As students progress on the continuum of computer science skills, learn more about the stages that all learners go through on their way to understanding coding through the use of physical computing devices.
*Coding is not just about screen time!
Are you a superintendent or curriculum director? Maybe you are an instructional coach tasked with helping teachers integrate computer science into their curriculum.
Learn more about the tools and resources you need to create a K-12 CS pathway.
Wondering which physical computing devices best support your curriculum standards and district goals?
These Playbooks are alphabetically organized ie: Bee Bot, Kai's Clan, Ozobot. They identify appropriate grade level, instructional videos, teaching resources, and lesson ideas.
Educators have too many initiatives, requirements, student needs, standards to cover...you name it! The current K-12 educational system MUST undergo radical change if we wish to continue engaging our children to maximize the human potential of ALL!
