What is Computational Thinking?
Computational thinking is the creation of an algorithm, or series of steps, that a person or computer can use to perform a task or solve a problem. It is an approach to problem-solving that involves critical thinking, creativity, and innovation, as well as digital skills to execute the algorithm.
In education, computational thinking helps students break down complex problems, recognize patterns, figure out how the different parts work together, and create an algorithmic solution.
