Abstract

There is a growing interest in examining how computer scientists think and the way these thinking methods could be used by the students whose major is not computer science. The reason for this focus on computer science is in direct response to the much needed skill of effectively solving problems using computing devices. In 2006, Jeanette Wing, in her seminal paper on computational thinking, suggested that computational thinking, which involves the ways computer scientists formulate problems with the use of computers, is a thinking skill for all students in the digital age, not only for computer scientists. After this call, there were many initiatives (e.g. ISTE, CSTA) which proposed substantial suggestions to integrate computational thinking skills across K-12 schools. The purpose of the paper is to illustrate how CT can be integrated in a virtual higher education curriculum and discuss some of the pedagogical considerations for teaching.
