Italian Journal of Educational Technology Volume 25, Number 2, ISSN 2532-4632 e-ISSN 2532-4632 Publisher: Edizioni Menabò - Menabò srl, Ortona, Italy


Computer science has produced, at an astonishing and breathtaking pace, amazing technology that has transformed our lives with profound economic and societal impact. In the course of the past ten years, we have come to realize that computer science offers not just useful software and hardware artifacts, but also an intellectual framework for thinking, what I call “computational thinking\u201d. Everyone can benefit from thinking computationally. My grand vision is that computational thinking will be a fundamental skill\u2014just like reading, writing, and arithmetic\u2014used by everyone by the middle of the 21st Century.
