IT Problem Solving: An Implementation of Computational Thinking in Information Technology

  • This paper describes the implementation of information technology problem-solving constructs and scenarios designed to cultivate computational thinking in information technology education at the college level via a course entitled “IT Problem Solving.” A project of Broadening Advanced Technological Connections (BATEC), these scenarios were developed by a team of researchers under the auspices of an NSF CPATH grant focusing on adapting Computational Thinking as defined by Jeanette Wing into a more applied framework in partnership with and validated by a broad set of Information Technology (IT)
    professionals. The methodologies used within this highly successful course at Bunker Hill Community College may be of interest to other departments with existing IT programs that would like to take advantage of the strengths of the problem solving approach.
