Understanding Computational Thinking: Linking Education Pathways to Workforce Needs.

SESSION: Special Topic: Workforce Development

EVENT TYPE: Workforce Development Panel

TIME: 1:30PM - 2:15PM

Panelists:Irene Lee, Joe Ippolito, Nadine Miner, Creighton Edington, David Kratzer, Lorie Liebrock

ROOM:WSCC 2A/2B

ABSTRACT:
Over the past several years, thought leaders within the computer science and education communities have defined computational thinking within their own communities of practice and discussed the importance of computational thinking as a key ingredient in technology-enabled discovery and innovation. This panel, composed of CT-enabled STEM professionals and educators, seeks to ground and extend the national dialog on Computational Thinking (CT) by linking findings from an occupational analysis of CT Enabled STEM professionals to educational programs developed to meet these workforce needs. The questions addressed by this panel are: 1) What does Computational Thinking look like in practice among scientists, engineers and technologists in various industry sectors and national laboratories? 2) How are core Computational Thinking skills nurtured in K-20 students as they prepare for STEM careers? 3) What practices have been successful in broadening the engagement and participation of underrepresented groups in Computational Thinking?
