Can Computational Thinking Practices Be Taught in Robotics Classrooms?

This question, “Can Computational Thinking be Taught in Robotics Classrooms” is being answered by NSF DRK-12 Award Number 1418199 Changing Culture in Robotics Classrooms research project. This presentation will share a scaffolded set of tools that can be used in Technology and Engineering classrooms to engage in computational thinking practices. The attached paper presents the strategies and tools designed by the project partners. The Principle Investigators on the project are from Carnegie Mellon’s Robotics Academy  and the University of Pittsburgh’s Learning Research and Development Center.  This presentation will be highly informative if you are remotely interested in how to teach Computer Science in a technology education or engineering classroom.
