New Learning Materials for Computational Thinking

Kim Smith

Inspired by the simplicity and aesthetics of traditional Montessori education, these materials live within and extend this pedagogy to address new proficiencies and emerging fields, such as computational thinking. The foundation of computer science is not included in many early childhood and elementary curricula. When it is, however, the emphasis tends to be on the interface, rather than the concepts behind it. These materials break down the fundamentals of computation into a set of discrete and tangible concepts that are expressed in hands-on, tactile ways.
