What’s the Difference Between Coding and Computational Thinking? | EdSurge News | In my last EdSurge article, “Computer Science Goes Beyond Coding,” I wrote about the difference between coding and computer science, to help us understand what we mean by phrases like “Teach kids to code” and “Computer science for all.”

Scratch Programming - Computational Thinking Homework 1

Computational Thinking (learning to think in a logical/problem solving way) is the buzz word in the teaching of programming. By teaching students to predict the outcome of small pieces of code they naturally become better at building their own programs.

Scratch, a programming project from MIT, might be an unexpected tool for digital storytelling. Using Scratch to tell a story is a “twofer”: Students practice important ELA skills and at the same time use computational thinking.

"Start Unplugged! Coding in Early Years" great article with educational games connecting computational thinking with physical action.
