K–12 Computational Learning
Enhancing student learning and understanding by combining theories of learning with the computer’s unique attributes.
In “Computational Thinking,” Jeannette Wing struck a chord that has resonated strongly (generating positive as well as negative responses) with many computer scientists and non-computer scientists. In this article, Cooper et al. reframe the way computational thinking is conceptualized and present a new model for computational learning in K-12 education.
