With the rise in computer science education, educators across the curriculum are looking for ways to incorporate computer science principles into their curriculum. Computational thinking is a pedagogical model that teaches students to think like a computer scientist. Learn how computational thinking allows educators to easily introduce computer science principles across curricular educational settings.
