Gutachter für Dissertation, Marina Rottenhofer: Modeling in the Foreign Language Classroom: A Hands-on Approach to Foster Computational Thinking Skills
Sprache des Titels:
In recent years, computational thinking (CT) has gained considerable attention as a set of problem-solving skills that should be taught in every school to prepare children for the fast-paced life of the digital age. Thus, the last years have also witnessed an increasing occurrence of CT as part of education curricula in many countries, including Austria. However, many definitions of CT and the term itself often lead to the misconception that teaching this skill-set requires special computer knowledge and tools and is thus very demanding for teachers, who do not meet these requirements.
