WHAT IS COMPUTATIONAL THINKING?

Computational Thinking involves using concepts found in computer sciences to integrate strategies, design systems, organise data logically, break down problems, interpret patterns and implement algorithims. These approaches can be applied to areas throughout the K-10 curriculum.

“Computational thinking is the thought processes involved in formulating problems and their solutions so that the solutions are represented in a form that can effectively be carried out by an information-processing agent.”Jeannette Wing

This interdisciplinary cross-sector event will cover the key questions of  why and how to teach computational thinking in a K-10 clasroom across all key learning areas. The conference and workshops will answer questions such as:

  • Why should I teach computational thinking?
  • How do I teach coding, robotics, makerspaces and other innovative learning in K-10 classrooms?
  • How do I link computational thinking to the Board of Studies NSW Syllabus?

Teach students about:

  • robotics
  • galileo boards
  • coding
  • using makerspaces in K-10 classrooms
  • linking activities to the NSW BOS syllabus
  • expo
  • and more…

Workshops will identify:

  • Methods of teaching computational thinking in a K-10 classroom
  • Relevant outcomes in the NSW BOS Syllabus
  • Hands on lessons to take back to the classroom

Venue

  • Wi-Fi
  • Devices supplied for workshops if required
