Transcript of What is computational thinking?
It is a problem solving strategy which may or may not involve a computer.
It is considering the ways in which a problem can be solved/ an outcome can be achieved most effectively.
There are 6 different concepts involved.
"[Computational Thinking] is essential to the development of computer applications, but it can also be used to support problem solving across all disciplines, including math, science, and the humanities. Students who learn CT across the curriculum can begin to see a relationship between subjects as well as between school and life outside of the classroom."
1) Consider the steps required to solve the problem.
2) Possibly use a computer to solve the problem.
An example given by Barefoot Computing is creating an animation. The computational thinking would involve generating steps such as planning the storyline, characters, setting etc. before using software such as Scratch to physically make the final animation.
To solve the problem:
