Intro to Computational Thinking
Computational thinking builds bridges between disciplines and people using the transformative power of 21st-century problem-solving. Discover how you can apply a computer science lens to revitalize your approach to education and spark student interest in the future of STEM learning.
Young Women's STEAM Research and Preparatory Academy.
El Paso, TX
Meet Pete and learn how he consistently infuses aspects of computational thinking into his daily lessons, including collect and analyzing data, decomposing problems, building models, and developing algorithms.
Franklin Middle School
Meet Jenna and learn how she demonstrates computational thinking across subjects and the importance of collaboration with her fellow educators and administration that has made this strategy such a success.
G.O. Bailey Elementary School
Meet Emy and learn how she debunks myths about teaching computational thinking – such as needing technology like computers in the classroom to use computational thinking resources or that teaching computational thinking will take time away from “regular” classes.
Next Level Computational Thinking
Explore the exciting ways that you can transcend virtual learning challenges by incorporating computational thinking into your lessons. Find out how pioneering educators from around the world are encouraging all students to problem-solve community and global issues.
Computational Thinking for All Students
Meet Shakirah, a true believer that consistent, explicit use of computational thinking strategies benefits all learners. She provides relevant experiences that challenge students to take ownership and make a difference.
Using Computational Thinking to Solve Community Problems
Surrey, British Columbia, Canada
Hugh believes that students can solve community issues using computational thinking. In his classroom, students are given the expectation that they must propose ideas and develop the processes to problem solve.
The Power of a Global Collaboration
Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, Mexico
Diego Vela advocates that educators should never stop learning and empower their students to collaborate on a global level. He uses computational thinking to teach the power of collaboration, critical thinking, creativity and communication.
