“In today's high-tech and ever-changing world, it is increasingly clear that students need to be able to think critically and resolve complex and ill-defined problems in order to truly thrive in the environment where they are one day expected to live and work.”

~ Schön, 1987; Ventura, Lai, and DiCerbo, 2017.

One approach to make students better at solving problems and expressing solutions is to teach computational thinking. Understanding the basics of coding helps students develop an appreciation of how things work.

This myViewboard Original Content is based on transporting patients to the hospital. This gives students an opportunity to formulate solutions using a real-world problem.


Instructions
