Learn about computational thinking resources for grades 1 through 10 with a carefully graded and age-appropriate curriculum. See step-by-step lesson plans for teachers without prior knowledge. Explore the new series of Digital Kids/Teens Second Edition with the free Can Code and Robotics ebooks.

Audience: Chief technology officers/superintendents/school board members, Teachers, Curriculum/district specialists
Skill level: Beginner
Attendee devices: Devices not needed
Topic: Computer science & computational thinking
Grade level: PK-12
Subject area: Computer science, STEM/STEAM
ISTE Standards: For Students:
Computational Thinker
  • Students formulate problem definitions suited for technology-assisted methods such as data analysis, abstract models and algorithmic thinking in exploring and finding solutions.
  • Students understand how automation works and use algorithmic thinking to develop a sequence of steps to create and test automated solutions.
  • Students break problems into component parts, extract key information, and develop descriptive models to understand complex systems or facilitate problem-solving.

Proposal summary

Purpose & objective

Computer Science, Computing, or ICT: different names for the same topic in all schools worldwide. Computational thinking is now a part of the CS curriculum, and it should be appropriately covered in all grades.
Teachers who want to teach coding and/or robotics will understand the importance of graded lesson plans and resources. The curriculum must follow a spiral, project-based approach based on the age and school grade of the students.
They will learn how to choose coding tools and educational robots based on the time available per week, the students' existing skills, and the current trends in CS education.
And of course, what can you use during the pandemic when you teach remotely?

Supporting research

The Digital Kids and Digital Teens curriculum is field-tested in more than 50 countries. The feedback we have received from teachers and students is integrated into the second edition of the series. Customized editions of the material are approved and used by Ministries of Education worldwide for the subject of Computing and ICT.
