Computational Thinking Education in Primary and Secondary Schools

 

IRN Start Date: 1 May 2019

 

Abstract

Computational thinking is a thinking process cum an educational approach involving the formulation of problems and solutions by drawing on the fundamental concepts of computer science. Primary and secondary education sector s are facing a global need for computational thinking education (CTE) to empower young generations with computational thinking competency for problem solving and innovations in the digital age. The proposed IRN establishes a professional network, with 14 active scholars in the field of technology enhanced learning from 10 countries /regions across 4 continents, for the collaborative endeavors on the promotion and implementation of a content rich CTE in primary and secondary schools across different countries /regions. Through regular face to face meetings in conjunction with participation in prestigious international conferences, and continuous sharing and discussions in virtual spaces, the proposed IRN will make a collaborative effort in preparing common publications , promoting best practices, and applying common funding for investigating and advocating the practice, research and policy conducive to the effective promotion and implementation of CTE in primary and secondary schools.
