Introduction to Computational Thinking

Welcome to this course - Introduction to Computational Thinking!  By taking part and completing this course, you will explore the basics of Computational Thinking including the vocabulary and myths associated with the term.  Computational Thinking is a set of problem-solving methods that involve expressing problems and their solutions. We will explore what you already do in school to support and develop Computational Thinking skills, introduce you to unplugged activities, which require no technology at all, and help you to develop a whole school strategy to implement Computational Thinking concepts across the curriculum, and school.  If you have any questions as you work through the course then please do get in touch  - we are here to support you on your journey! 

What you’ll learn;

  • Develop an understanding of key computational thinking vocabulary.
  • Explore and develop methods of computing activities without a computer.
  • Use ‘Physical Coding’ as a means to deliver important programming concepts outside of ‘ICT’.
  • Understand a range of questioning techniques to use with students.
