Assessment of Computational Thinking (CT) in Scratch Fractal Projects: Towards CT-HCI Scaffolds for Analogical-fractal Thinking

This work aims to identify correlations between the respective scores for each project’s constructs corresponding to the respective total CT scores and to identify important human-computer interaction principles in scaffolding CT/fractal/f Fractal thinking development.

Refining an understanding of computational thinking

This paper identifies aspects of computational thinking and proposes a description that meets the needs of teachers and academics reflecting upon the developing UK curriculum. Since Jeanette Wing’s

As Aventuras de Ada e Turing : apoiando o desenvolvimento do pensamento computacional por meio de um jogo

As the dependence of simple tasks on the use of computers increases, and as this use in itself becomes more complex by the day, some nations have started to invest on educational policies that insert

Improving the Computational Thinking Pedagogical Capabilities of School Teachers

The idea of computational thinking as skills and universal competence which every child should possess emerged last decade and has been gaining traction ever since. This raises a number of questions,

Mathematics and programming: marriage or divorce?

This study is focused on identifying which mathematical knowledge positively correlates with programming skills acquisition, and claims that mathematical concepts related to induction, inference and logical reasoning are among such knowledge.


The results showed that the relationship between problem-solving and computational thinking of respondent when solving the problem is when defining the problem, the respondent performs the stage of decomposition and abstraction in the context of computational thinking.

Knowledge Level and Self-Confidence on The Computational Thinking Skills Among Science Teacher Candidates

The trending topic in today's education is computational thinking skills which are used to help to solve complicated problems easier. This study aims to identify the level of knowledge and

A Lightweight Co-Construction Activity for Teaching 21st Century Skills at Primary Schools

A lightweight hybrid co-construction method based on software development via two exploratory case studies in a Finnish primary school, and an adult programmer is partnered with a group of children to construct math games together.

Factor Analysis of Computational Thinking for Software Education Based on Problem-Solving Learning

Background/Objectives: In a software-oriented society, changes are taking place in many fields as well as in interdisciplinary convergence. For this purpose, we attempt to analyze the factors

Connecting the science classroom and tangible interfaces: the bifocal modeling framework

In most schools, robotics teachers conduct activities regardless of what happens in the science or math classroom, but such activities are oftentimes attended by males, too focused on competitions and prescribed, standardized "challenges," and disconnected from the school curriculum.

It is suggested that for new domains of investigation where there are no appropriate models of computation, it may be necessary to invent new formalisms to represent the systems under study.

EducationPaving the way for computational thinking

Drawing on methods from diverse disciplines---including computer science, education, sociology, and psychology---to improve computing education.

Computational thinking for youth in practice

A "use-modify-create" framework is presented, representing three phases of students' cognitive and practical activity in computational thinking, suggesting continued investment in the development of CT-rich learning environments, in educators who can facilitate their use, and in research on the broader value of computational thinking.

Bringing computational thinking to K-12: what is Involved and what is the role of the computer science education community?

The process of increasing student exposure to computational thinking in K-12 is complex, requiring systemic change, teacher engagement, and development of signifi cant resources. Collaboration with
