Think tank on Computational Thinking

Detail Summary
Date 23 March 2018
Time 13:00 - 17:00

Computational Thinking is a popular subject in discussions about education for the future, however without any substantial agreement in the meaning of the concept. This meeting on Computational Thinking has a research perspective and is focused on a first, necessary question in the discussion about Computational Thinking: How to measure a Computational Thinking skill? The measurement question forces us to be unambiguous, specific (e.g., how are CT skills different from IQ, or inquiry-learning skills?) but also general (do CT skills depend on mastering one specific programming language?). As a follow-up question, we will discuss ways to detect misconceptions in Computational Thinking.
