Computational thinking in primary education

In this article I will present what computation thinking is and how it can help the teaching process by using concepts from computer science field. These concepts can be used both in computer science and in other fields as engineering, medicine etc. In the first part, we will define what computation thinking is, after which in the second part we will discuss the concepts and characteristics. In the third part we will discuss about developing thinking and reasoning in primary education. The forth part will be the case study with Qbit, a duo composed from a robot and an application design to teach problem solving skills using computation thinking.
