Integrated Digital Education - Computational Thinking For Everyone

ISSEP 2019 local proceedings
When Austria introduced the new mandatory subject "basic digital education" in September 2018 for all pupils in grade 6 (twelveyear-old), computational thinking finally found its way into the school system. Schools can decide if they offer specific subjects or if they implement the curriculum in an integrative way in several subjects. However, schools still fight the problem who is teaching and how, because most schools just cannot install a stand-alone subject. This results in the fact that non IT teachers have to teach the contents of this curriculum, too. Hence, creative ideas for the implementation of the new curriculum are required because the schools need support for a cross-curricular introduction to computational thinking.
