Computational thinking (Guzdial 2008; Wing 2006; Wing 2008) means solving problems using a logical, often mathematical, foundation. One important type of computational thinking involves being able to observe a problem in the world and then formulate a plan of action that can be carried out by a computer. Computational thinking is what computing professionals (MIS personnel, computer scientists) do when they analyze and design systems.
