We offer unique ways for you to encourage and inspire students who might have hidden natural ability in computer programming.
Computational thinking is becoming part of our everyday world. It is the basis of all computer programming and has led to platforms such has Facebook and Google.
Put simply, computational thinking is a problem-solving method that we draw on when solving complex problems with the use of computers. We draw on logical reasoning, algorithms, decomposition, abstraction and patterns, and generalisations when thinking computationally.
Achievement standards in computational thinking are included in the Australian Curriculum. And we have offerings designed to help you introduce these engaging and empowering concepts to your students.
Using computational thinking, you can foster lateral thinking and pragmatic problem solving to unearth future talent in computer programming—something students might not normally have an opportunity to demonstrate.
Details of how you can open your students’ eyes to the game-changing discipline of computational thinking are included below.
