Just released: Video interviews on computational thinking

What is computational thinking?

How is computational thinking distinct from other thinking skills?

How can teachers assess computational thinking skills?

Have you ever wanted to ask an expert these questions? The CSTA Computational Thinking Task Force is creating a series of video interviews in which we do just that!

Listen in on our conversation with Chris Stephenson, Director of Computer Science Education Programs at Google, as she answers our questions and describes cross curricular computational thinking applications in the task of preserving native languages (https://youtu.be/FuN6g8NmuHc).

Listen to our conversation with Eric Snow, Education Researcher in the Center for Technology in Learning at SRI International as he answers our questions and describes his research in assessing computational thinking (https://youtu.be/92pv8dPItjE).

We have several more interviews with experts in the field planned for later this fall.

All of the interviews are archived here: csteachers.org/page/CompThinkInterviews.
