Learning Achievements (Dublin Descriptors)

Knowledge and understanding. The course provides the knowledge and understanding of the concepts underlying computer programming and computational thinking: algorithm, instruction, instruction concatenation, conditional execution, repetition, procedures, functions, variables, parameters, debugging.

Ability to apply knowledge and understanding. Application of computational thinking to the elaboration, representation and execution of simple procedures in the didactic field. Ability to recognize computational aspects in different disciplinary fields. Ability to move from intuition to implementation.

Autonomy of judgment. The course stimulates independent judgment through the practice of debugging: critical analysis of procedures and algorithms in order to identify and correct errors.

Communication skills. The elements of visual programming provided by the course constitute to all effects a language suitable for the representation and unambiguous communication of complex procedures that offer constructive solutions to given problems. The activities proposed in the course include teamwork, sharing the solutions adopted and peer evaluation.

Learning ability. The course helps to develop learning skills by offering the methodological tools to apply computational thinking to teaching and studying each subject area.
