    5 Ways To Teach Computational Thinking in the Classroom

    Computational thinking is one of the most important skill sets educators can foster in young learners. It’s a cornerstone of early childhood development, giving kids an approach to problem-solving that develops a solution by following a series of steps: decomposition, pattern recognition, abstraction, and algorithm design.
