Design Thinking Versus Computational Thinking: Similarities and Differences
What does it mean to be a "good" thinker? What kinds of abilities do "good" thinkers exhibit? Are they creative, effective problem solvers, who are logical, and/or able to view things with a critical eye? Or do we mean something else entirely? There are a number of thinking models to choose from, including computational and design, both of which are specifically referenced in ISTE's Standards for Students. Join Susan Brooks-Young as she takes a closer look at both types of thinking and explores ways that you can employ both of them - on and offline - to help your students think more deeply.
