Abstract

While interest in computational thinking (CT) education has grown globally in the past decade, there lacks a single unified definition of CT. This can pose significant challenges for researchers, teachers, and policy makers trying to decide which assessment methods are appropriate for their specific CT interventions. Rather than trying to create a single unified definition of CT, this symposium brings together a broad spectrum of leading CT researchers to share what CT means for them, how it influenced their learning designs, and the methods for assessing CT learning. This interactive session will showcase these different views of CT in a single place and serve as a rich opportunity for comparison and discussion.
