Computational Thinking And Adaptive Learning System

What is Computational Thinking (CT) and Why Kids Should Be Trained To Practice It

Computational thinking is a problem solving process that begins with logical ordering of the problem at hand, followed by analyzing the data available leading to creative solutions or results by using a series of ordered steps. (In computer applications, this series of ordered steps is called algorithms). Computational Thinking or CT is required for the development of computer applications, naturally but not only that, CT can be used in problem solving for math, science as well as the humanities. 

In the 21st Century, Computational Thinking is as important as reading, writing and mathematics.

In short, CT involves step by step problem solving and designing solutions through the understanding of human behaviour. Students who learn CT are often better able to see a correlation between the different subjects they are studying or a relationship between school and life outside the classroom. The ability to relate school to life in general by using Computational Thinking is what makes CT an interesting and useful skill that all kids should have. 

There is a need to adapt the language of education to this way of thinking and our classrooms are slowly heading towards that direction however at the moment the best way to practice Computational Thinking is by attending classes on Computer Science, Computer Programming and Coding organized by experts in the industry.

Another intriguing way of learning that some of these Computer Programming classes offer is student-centric learning through Adaptive Learning Systems.

Some of these centres offer a student centered personalized learning environment where a student learns at his own pace using artificial intelligence technology while at the same time interacting with other students in controlled learning team collaborations. Adaptive learning environments gives a child a more controlled studying environment and therefore more confidence when learning objectives are achieved. Parents are able to support learning at home by checking in through their children's progress and homework online in the comfort of home.
