This project aims to identify characteristics of effective computational thinking teaching in primary and secondary education (K-9).

In my understanding, computational thinking in a digitized world includes innovative use of computer science principles, as well as critical thinking and understanding of data processing. Computational thinking is embedded in the Danish subject "technology understanding", currently tested through a three-year trial program in K-9.

The project is designed as a mixed method study with three phases: A) a survey study, B) structured observation studies, and C) a framework for CT education, to prepare children to live in a 21st century democratic society.
