Conclusion

As noted in the Preface and in Chapter 1, this set of two workshops was not intended to develop or to advance a consensus view of computational thinking. In both workshops, participants expressed a wide variety of views regarding both the nature of and the pedagogy for computational thinking. It is the committee’s hope that the summaries from both workshops will help to stimulate in the relevant communities the creative thinking that is necessary for a consensus view on this topic to emerge in the future.
