From Computational Making to Computational ThinkingSpeaker: Jennifer Rode – London, United Kingdom
Topic(s): Human Computer Interaction
AbstractComputational thinking is considered best practice for teaching computing and more broadly to solve problems and design systems, however, as computing extends beyond the desktop (for instance increased integration of ubicomp technologies) so too must our educational methods. Exposure to ubicomp technologies is most approachable through the maker movement. With this in mind, this talk argues we must move from computational thinking to computational making as an educational framework. It presents a case study of children's making to support our vision for a broader conception of computational making.
