Educational robotics is an effective tool for providing students with opportunities to learn computational thinking skills and concepts. Computational thinking, as introduced by Jannette Wing in 2006 (Wing, 2006), is a problem-solving process involving a variety of processes and skill sets (Barr, Harrison, & Conery, 2011). This paper explains computational thinking in the context of computer science as a discipline as well as in the K-12 educational setting. Specific examples of student work and projects show how the use of educational robotics as a learning tool helps student easily acquire experience with computational thinking
