"Computational Thinking is a fundamental skill, something every human being must know to function in modern society.
Computational thinking is a way humans solve problems; it is not trying to get humans to think like computers."
"Computational Thinking is a way of solving problems, designing systems, and understanding human behaviour."
Computational thinking confronts the riddle of machine intelligence; What can humans do better than computers? What can computers do better than humans?
Computational thinking will be a fundamental skill, used by everyone by the middle of the 21st Century. Just like reading, writing and arithmetic.
If computational thinking is this fundamental to our students’ futures, how do we teach it and help students to learn it? In this course, you will explore these questions in a range of practical ways.
