Computer Science – Computational Thinking and PISA
- Estonia boasts one of the most innovative education models in the world, thanks, in particular, to a project launched in 2012, called ProgeTiger. Based on this project, Estonian schools reach the entire population, from kindergarten to lifelong learning, 𝐭𝐞𝐚𝐜𝐡𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐟𝐨𝐮𝐧𝐝𝐚𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧𝐬 𝐨𝐟 𝐜𝐨𝐦𝐩𝐮𝐭𝐞𝐫 𝐩𝐫𝐨𝐠𝐫𝐚𝐦𝐦𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐭𝐡𝐫𝐨𝐮𝐠𝐡 “𝐩𝐫𝐚𝐜𝐭𝐢𝐜𝐚𝐥 𝐚𝐜𝐭𝐢𝐯𝐢𝐭𝐢𝐞𝐬 𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝐚𝐠𝐞-𝐚𝐩𝐩𝐫𝐨𝐩𝐫𝐢𝐚𝐭𝐞 𝐩𝐫𝐨𝐠𝐫𝐚𝐦𝐦𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐥𝐚𝐧𝐠𝐮𝐚𝐠𝐞𝐬”
- We discovered that Finnish schools focus on problem solving, developing logical skills and digital competence within what they call ‘transversal competencies’ as part of every subject. They have adopted a blend of teaching computational thinking through both a cross-curricular and a single subject approach linking specifically to maths. Schools use an elective approach and we saw this at Lielhati school where students can opt into short computational thinking and programming courses.Finland is renowned for an unorthodox and highly successful approach that has been pored over by experts given that, until the last few years, it has been one of the very top performers in the Programme for International Student Assessment (Pisa), which tests the reading, mathematics and science literacy of 15-year-olds.
