Robotics and Computational Thinking

Computational Thinking

The characteristics that define computational thinking are decomposition, pattern recognition / data representation, generalization/abstraction, and algorithms. Here are some resources that will help you get a better grasp of computational thinking and to build it into your lessons.

Educational Technology

To search for literature related to Educational Technology, robotics, or coding, try: 

  • educational technology
  • "coding theory"
  • "computer programming"
  • "electronic circuits"
  • "mobile robots"
  • "programming languages (electronic computers)"

Try adding AND "study and teaching" to any of your keywords. For example:

"electronic circuits" AND "study and teaching"

Children's Fiction

To search just for children's fiction, add AND "juvenile fiction" to your search. Example:

robots AND "juvenile fiction"

The above search would return results like the following:

Children's Non-Fiction

To search for just children's non-fiction, add the words AND "juvenile literature" to your search. Example:

robots AND "juvenile literature"

The above search would return results like the following:
