This webinar recording is from the ISTE Professional Learning Series. It aired on Wednesday, October 4, 2017.

The ability to reason, think, use computational thinking and problem-solve are essential digital age skills. But to bring skills like computational thinking to learners, it’s important to understand what it is, and what it is not. In this webinar, administrators, curriculum directors, instructional coaches and teachers will hear about the accurate definition of computational thinking and make connections between computer science and how our own brains acquire and process new information.

Presented by the ISTE Computer Science Network.
