Computational thinking (CT), while not a new concept, is becoming an increasingly important analytical skill that every child should master in order to be successful in the digital age. Computational thinking refers to a new set of problem solving strategies to tackle today’s complex issues. Because it is a thinking skill, CT has to be incorporated throughout the curriculum and span all academic areas rather than being isolated in the computer science curriculum. This paper presents a study where instructional designers are surveyed in instructional design strategies that could be used for CT integration in instruction.
