This interactive session will introduce 'computational thinking' - a set of problem solving skills at the heart of England's computing curriculum. The session will illustrate how such skills can be learnt and applied across a range of subjects; not just in computing! From maths to science, and art to English. The session will share a selection of practical activities which can be used with pupils to develop their computational thinking and make them better problem solvers. Teachers will be introduced to Barefoot Computing (https://www.barefootcomputing.org/) which provides a wide range of free resources to follow on from the session.
