Dagienė V. & Futschek G. (2019) On the Way to Constructionist Learning of Computational Thinking in Regular School Settings. Constructivist Foundations 14(3): 231–233. Fulltext at
Context: Computational thinking denotes the thinking processes needed to solve problems in the way computer scientists would. It is seen as an ability that is important for everybody in a society that is rapidly changing due to applications of computational technologies. More and more countries are integrating computational thinking into their school curricula. Problem: There is a need for more effective learning environments and learning methods to teach computational thinking principles to children of all ages. The constructionist approach seems to be promising since it focuses on developing thinking skills. Method: We extract and discuss insights from the target articles. Results: There are several learning initiatives and curricula that successfully apply constructionist learning to acquiring computational thinking skills. Implications: Computational thinking as a subject at school presents a chance to bring more constructionist learning to schools.
