Computational thinking is a way of solving problems, designing systems, and understanding human behavior that draws on concepts fundamental to computer science.
An algorithm is a procedure or formula for solving a problem.
In class this week we used a few coding programs, i used the Code Monster. i found this very difficult to understand. It was just too complicated, the program didn’t make sense. i did sit there and try to figure it out with a few people on my table, but we just gave up in the end.
Also today in class we played a little game on the internet where we had to identify the internal parts of a computer. i had a few tries of this and in the end i got most of them right. It was quite difficult and i would not use this program in my classroom.
