Abstract

The introduction of computational thinking (CT) at primary level is an area of research still in its infancy and in critical need of further research. Adopting a constructionist perspective, the research reported in this paper explores how CT can be introduced at primary school within the context of existing curricula (mathematics and science). More specifically, it presents, synthesises and discusses three research studies carried out by three practicing primary school teachers.
