Digital Technologies: Computational Thinking

A guide to support the integration of digital technologies into the Mater Christi College Curriculum.

What is Computational Thinking?

A problem-solving method that involves various techniques and strategies in order to solve problems that can be implemented by digital systems, such as organising data logically, breaking down problems into components, and the design and use of algorithms, patterns and models.

Pattern Recognition: Organising Data Logically

  • Are there any patterns in the data set?
  • What tools can I use to gain more meaning from the dataset?
  • Is there any missing data?

Decomposition: Breaking down problems

  • Are there parts of this process that are repeated?
  • Can we break the problem down into distinct stages?

Algorithmic Design: Creating solutions using a series of steps.
