Computational Thinking, Programming…and the Google App Inventor – SmartBean


What were Papert’s views on children, computers and "powerful ideas”? Are they relevant today? Why should we introduce our kids to programming and how? Find out all the answers to these and more in this article - Computational Thinking, Programming…and the Google App Inventor that I recently co-authored with Charles Profitt, leader of the NY State Ubuntu Local Community.

(Incidentally my older son was at the Googleplex in Mountain View recently for a 3-week "Computational and Programming Experience" camp for 14-year olds that is designed with similar goals in mind..)

It is a very relevant information for those teenagers who are struggling with computational programming. It would also give them an insight into what incentives proper programming and thinking could bring into their lives in the later stage. A very motivational post!
