  • Course description On Era of Generative AI, how can we develop Computational Thinking? How can we develop computational thinking without using computers? Especially on the Primary School Level, there are situations which we do not have computers and informatics teachers, and so on. Here, we have the following questions. ▸ “How can we develop computational thinking without using computers?” ▸ “What basic informatics content is suitable for primary school level?” ▸ “How can we fit these lessons into our curriculum schedules?” To Answer the questions, we developed the guidebook with SEAMEO Centers and related institutions based on the APEC curriculum reform recommendation. And them, the University of Tsukuba and Kohn Kaen University are engaging in the APEC Workshop with APEC Lesson Study Network to develop unplugged computational Thinking. First workshop was finished on April 18th, 2004 just only for the government officials in APEC economies. For general audience in education, this course was developed based on the workshop. On this course, we share the idea and instruments to develop computational thinking at Primary School Level through the explanation of the content of guidebook. All the lessons will begin on Wednesday afternoon from 14:00 (Japan time GMT+9) through a live streaming via YouTube. Certificate will be provided for the participants who have completed all 4 assignments for the lesson by the set due date.
