Here we delve deeper into the fine details of teaching Computational Thinking – is it taught as a separate subject, if not, which subjects does it align naturally with, what are the advantages and constraints.
Mujahidul Islam talks to Geeta Ghormade and Pallavi Naik, two school principals, about their experiences in implementing Computational Thinking in the classroom.
The discussion will be in English and Hindi.
