Technology is shaping how we do things for example how we go shopping, how we communicate with eachother, how we diagnose illnesses or how we collaborate and with whom on projects. The ability to extend our power of human thought with digital tools has become an essential part of our everyday lives and work. We all need to understand how, when, and where computers and other digital tools can help us solve problems, and we all need to know how to communicate with others who can assist us with computer-supported solutions.
Computational thinking is a problem solving process that includes formulating problems in a way a computer can execute them. This problem-solving process can be applied to a wide variety of problems in your daily life.
This evening we would like to explore the basic concepts of computational thinking by practical exercises.
18:30 Doors open
19:00- 19:20 Welcome & Introduction to the Concept of Computational Thinking
19:30 - 20:15 Team up around computational thinking exercises (everybody is welcome to suggest tasks that help understand the basic concepts of decomposition, abstraction, pattern recognition and algorithm design in a hands-on way)
20:15 - 20:30 Feedback round
20:30 open end networking
