Coding, Robotics, Computational Thinking
During the 2018-2019 school year, the library media department will be making a concerted effort to provide all WCPS students with coding, robotics and computational thinking opportunities. For students in PK-5, this will occur as a part of their regularly scheduled library periods. For middle and high school students, it will occur as a part of and integrated, enrichment or club-based opportunity.
Computational thinking is a structured way to solve problems. As described by Jeannette Wing, PhD, in 2006, computational thinking has these qualities:
