“Computational thinking is a fundamental skill for everyone, not just for computer scientists. To reading, writing, and arithmetic, we should add computational thinking to every child’s analytical ability.”Jeannette Marie Wing , Avanessians Director , Data Science Institute, Columbia University
- Are you unclear on where to start with the computing curriculum, or would like ideas on how to bring computing to life?
- Would you like to secure your own understanding or be sure that you are have a strong offering in this area?
Life Benefits of learning Computational Thinking
Code.org has vowed that every child should have access to a computing teaching, which includes computational thinking and coding. But most employers will not be looking for coders, rather looking for computational thinkers. People who can take complex problems and break them down into smaller manageable logical steps. The final solution to the problem is to get it into code.
This course is designed to support teachers in ensuring they have a complete understanding of coding and computing. It will provide coherent strategies to confidently deliver the curriculum in ways that spark the imaginations of our younger pupils.
