Application of Computational Thinking: Coding Classic Games

My popular twitter poster is available for download here!

This poster gives an example of how computational thinking can be used to convert classic games such as ‘rock, paper, scissors’ and ‘noughts and crosses’ into algorithms. Try out in your classroom!

I have included JPEG and PNG versions of the poster.

Computational Thinking is a skill set that can be used across the curriculum, not just within computer science! The logical approach to solving a problem means that it’s application can be used to develop and improve students ability to deal with difficult problems in a more rational way. The aim of my posters is to make you realise that many of the brilliant tasks that teachers facilitate week in, week out actually include computational thinking. It’s just a matter of making it more explicit!
