Deeper Learning enables digital natives to extend and transfer learning to more complex real-world problems. Computational Thinking is an authentic and more efficient way of developing deeper learning by providing learners with higher-level thinking skills to analyze and present their innovative ideas through self-created experimental design.

PURPOSE: To develop 21st-century learners to become computational thinkers who will be to solve real-world problems through exploration, collection of data, and experimental design.
OBJECTIVES: By the end of the session, the participants will be able to:
1) Demonstrate the understanding of computational thinking.
2) explain four levels of computational thinking.
3) design activities of each level to incorporate computation thinking.
Educational Challenges: Individuals must be able to recognize patterns, focus on the Important items, and design a model
Technology intervention: Laptop/desktop/Chromebook may be used to collect relevant information, drawing model, etc.
Models employed: 4 Levels of Computational thinking chart is used to provide a visual for better understanding.
Instructional Activities: A model for strategic thinking is employed to provide an example for evidence-based reasoning.
Evidence of success: The participants will be able to design their own strategies to test their ideas and produce examples of activities that facilitate computational thinking.
