Abstract

Computational thinking has recently become an important paradigm in computer education. A good example that shows the development of computational thinking can be found in smart devices that resolve many problematic situations in daily life. For informatics gifted elementary school students, the development of smartphone applications basically requires not only programming languages such as Java, but also a certain level of knowledge about programming including other complex programming environments. The purpose of this study was to develop an application development learning curriculum that can enhance the computational thinking of informatics gifted elementary school students by utilizing MIT's AppInventor which enables the convenient development of applications.
