Computational Thinking

May 29, 2008 at 10:55 am

Computational thinking is a key skill for everyone, not just now for computer scientists. To reading, droping a line, and arithmetic, we should add together computational thinking to every child’s analytic ability. Merely as the impressing press alleviated the spread of the three Rs, what is befittingly incestuous about this vision is that calculating and computers ease the spread of computational thinking.

Computational thinking implies working problems, planing systems, and sympathizing human behavior, by drawing on the concepts key to computer science. Computational thinking admits a range of genial tools that meditate the breadth of the field of computer science.

from Jeannette M. Wing’s Computational Thinking Manifesto

The Center for Computation Thinking at CMU has more information about the subject.

We talked briefly about Computational Thinking back in 2006. Of late I heard to Jon Udell’s interview with Jeannette Wing and understood that it’s time to land this subject up over again for discussion.
