2015 (English)In: Proceeding of the 8th International Conference on Informatics in Schools:Situation, Evolution, and Perspective (ISSEP), 2015Conference paper (Refereed)
Computing is no longer considered a subject area only relevant for anarrow group of professionals, but rather as a vital part of general education thatshould be available to all children and youth. Since making changes to nationalcurricula takes time, people are trying to find other ways of introducing childrenand youth to computing. In Sweden, several current initiatives by researchers andteachers aim at finding ways of working with computing within the current curriculum.In this paper we present case studies based on a selection of these initiativesfrom four major regions in Sweden and based on these case studies wepresent our ideas for how to move forward on introducing computational thinkingon a larger scale in Swedish education.
