Description:
Panel discussion 2:45-3:45pm. “Computational thinking is creating and making use of different levels of abstraction to understand and solve problems more effectively; thinking algorithmically; and understanding the consequences of scale” (Carnegie Mellon University Center for Computational Thinking). Many educators simply say that computational thinking means thinking like a computer scientist.
