Problem Solving and Computational Thinking in a Learning Environment
Computational thinking is a new problem soling method named for its extensive use of computer science techniques. It synthesizes critical thinking and existing knowledge and applies them in solving complex technological problems. The term was coined by J. Wing, but the relationship between computational and critical thinking, the two modes of thiking in solving problems, has not been yet learly established. This paper aims at shedding some light into this relationship. We also present two classroom experiments performed recently at the Graduate Technological Educational Institute of Patras in Greece. The results of these experiments give a strong indication that the use of computers as a tool for problem solving enchances the students' abilities in solving real world problems involving mathematical modelling. This is also crossed by earlier findings of other researchers for the problem solving process in general (not only for mathematical problems).
