From Computational Thinking to Computational Empowerment: A 21st Century PD Agenda

Publikation: Bidrag til bog/antologi/rapport/proceedingKonferencebidrag i proceedingsForskningpeer review

We propose computational empowerment as an approach, and a
Participatory Design response, to challenges related to
digitalization of society and the emerging need for digital
literacy in K12 education. Our approach extends the current
focus on computational thinking to include contextual, human-centered
and societal challenges and impacts involved in students’
creative and critical engagement with digital technology. Our
research is based on The Fablab@school.dk project, in which a PD approach to
computational empowerment provided opportunities as well as
further challenges for the complex agenda of digital technology
in education. We argue that PD has the potential to drive a
computational empowerment agenda in education, by
connecting political PD with contemporary visions for
addressing a future digitalized labor market and society.
