    An interesting reading - What is computational thinking?
    12 March
    Public discussion Created by Jacky Young

    I thought this article/reading gave some very clear points about this concept who's terms can often be a barrier to thinking about 'computational thinking'.

    Would be interested in what others think about - not only with the articles but with the concept of computational thinking. What do you do already?

    Excellent article Jacky! 

    Computational is a field requiring consideration as we prepare young people for the future. 

    I hope this information inspires and informs many forward facing schools and kura in their decision making.
