Application of Computational Thinking in Music

Application of Computational Thinking in Music

Download my poster which includes example task ideas on how to apply computational thinking problem solving skills to Music. The poster includes a range of tasks and classroom ideas that use key computational thinking skills! 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.
