Cross-Disciplinary Computational Thinking Notes

We explored Cross-Disciplinary Computational Thinking in our EDTC 6432 Computer Authoring Class with David Wicks and Kim Oakley. Through a goggle online forum, we used CT thinking and applied it to our subject area. We completed the course with a lesson plan that I posted as a seperate blog. The Arts and CT Thinking seemed to go hand-in-hand. Breaking down problems into incremental bits in order to accomplish a larger task has to happen in the theatre or the visual arts classroom. Different roles are defined, especially in the theatre, in order to pull-off a major production. I also explored pattern making and it’s obvious connections to visual art. Feel free to read more in the uploaded document about Computational Thinking and the way it interconnected with teaching art.
