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.

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 collect data or identify relevant data sets, use digital tools to analyze them, and represent data in various ways to facilitate problem-solving and decision-making.
  • 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

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.
