Abstract

Educational robotics is an effective tool for providing students with opportunities to learn computational thinking skills and concepts. Computational thinking, as introduced by Jannette Wing in 2006 (Wing, 2006), is a problem-solving process involving a variety of processes and skill sets (Barr, Harrison, & Conery, 2011). This paper explains computational thinking in the context of computer science as a discipline as well as in the K-12 educational setting. Specific examples of student work and projects show how the use of educational robotics as a learning tool helps student easily acquire experience with computational thinking
