The Computational Thinker

What is a Computational Thinker?

Students develop and employ strategies for understanding and solving problems in ways that leverage the power of technological methods to develop and test solutions. All standards written in italics will not be a specific focus in my class.

Students formulate problem definitions suited for technology-assisted methods such as data analysis, abstract models and algorithmic thinking in exploring and finding solutions.

Students collect data or identify relevant data sets, use digital tools to analyze them, and represent data in various ways to facilitate problem-solving and decision-making.

Students break problems into component parts, extract key information, and develop descriptive models to understand complex systems or facilitate problem-solving.

Students understand how automation works and use algorithmic thinking to develop a sequence of steps to create and test automated solutions.

How will you fulfill the Computational Thinker Standard?

Specifically you will build on your knowledge constructed from and to automate processes via the micro:bit.
