Computational Thinking

Given technology’s ever-present role in our lives, it is essential for students to develop the ability to use and understand those technologies. Computational Thinking involves solving a range of problems like a computer scientist, identifying possible solutions to a particular problem, and selecting elegant strategies in solving them. Computational thinking means breaking down large tasks into smaller, more manageable problems, implementing algorithms, communicating patterns through symbolic language, and analyzing data and solutions.  These skills are essential to succeed in the world today regardless of what field a person decides to pursue.
