Computational Thinking is Pervasive

  title={Computational Thinking is Pervasive},
  author={Alan Bundy},
A remarkable intellectual revolution is happening all around us, but few people are remarking on it. Computational thinking is influencing research in nearly all disciplines, both in the sciences and the humanities. Researchers are using computational metaphors to enrich theories as diverse as protoeomics and the mind-body problem. Computing has enabled researchers to ask new kinds of questions and to accept new kinds of answers, for instance, questions that require the processing of huge… 

Computational Thinking in Innovative Computational Environments and Coding

This chapter will introduce the research on CT and, in particular, the works on innovative computational environments, and will describe the situation of the education to CT in high school and in academic courses.

Computational Thinking—More Than a Variant of Scientific Inquiry!

To pinpoint the different perspectives on CT, the terminology of articles from different backgrounds and periods is analyzed and the potential of meta-level programming and program analysis techniques as a computational counterpart of metacognitive strategies is envisaged.

Computational thinking : the skill set of the 21st century

This review begins with an introduction to computational thinking as a term, and gives some characteristics surrounding the skill set, and examines the benefits and advantages of computational thinking in general, and areas in which it may be applied.

Computer science and computational thinking in primary schools.

Evidence to support the previously un-validated theory that developing CT skills can improve students’ problem solving skills is made and a map of connections between CS, programming, and CT, and the core skills the NZ curriculum aims to develop in students is presented.

Teaching and Learning Music through the Lens of Computational Thinking

In recent years, many countries around the world have intensified their efforts to introduce computational thinking in schools. This paper supports this educational move not by proposing the teaching

Case Study: Integrating Computational Thinking into the Introductory Course of Computer Science via the Use of the Programming Language Python

The results showed that there was no statistically significant difference in the performance of participants between the two tests/assignments conducted and the goal to integrate the computational thinking skill in the introductory course of the Computer Science department was achieved.

The present and future of computational thinking

Intellectual constructs and tools that are widely used to solve the problems of society have been woven into educational programs and offer educational benefits beyond simple IT fluency.

Computational Thinking Processes and Their Congruence with Problem-Solving and Information Processing

This contribution provides the theoretical grounding for a national extension to the International Computer and Information Literacy Study 2018 (ICILS 2018) (Eickelmann, 2017) which enables for the first time the cross-national measurement of student achievement in computational thinking.

Examination of the Computational Thinking Skills of Students.

The SPSS programme (Statistical Package for the Social Sciences) has been used for data processes of findings of the research and the Cronbach Alpha reliability of the scale has been found to be valid to measure the computational skills levels of the secondary school students as a result of the analysis.

Problem solving and computational thinking. Building synergies between conceptualization and coding starting from primary school

Coding and computational thinking are two terms increasingly present in the scholastic debate of last years. The recent Italian guidelines and new scenarios (MIUR, 2018) have given to computational
