Knit x Code - Exploring a Craftsmanship-driven Approach to Computational Thinking

Research output: Contribution to journal/Conference contribution in journal/Contribution to newspaperJournal articleResearchpeer-review

Gaining the skills to participate in a digitized society have become increasingly important. With the need to understand how digital technology can both influence and aid our everyday life, a broader audience needs to be included and obtain the necessary skills.
In the KnitxCode project, we explored how a craftsmanship-driven approach might be useful in teaching a group of young women (about) computational thinking skills. Existing construction kits relating to computational thinking often tend to favor people, who are already interested in either robotics, programming or electronics.
