Core concepts of computational thinking
by John F. Sanford
International Journal of Teaching and Case Studies (IJTCS), Vol. 4, No. 1, 2013

Abstract: 'Computational thinking' has become a recognised approach to gaining knowledge and to problem-solving that has received much attention in the last 15 years. Exact descriptions of the art are still in process. This is a new concept which has evolved in association with the power of modern electronic computers though it does not mandate computer use. It experiences the usual delay in implementation of new concepts. This paper presents detailed approaches for implementing computational thinking in secondary schools and post-secondary education.
