Last ACT annual meeting in Ottawa has been the opportunity to share the advancements in the creative programming and making in intergeneraional contexts :

From computing to computational thinking: Encouraging creative approaches to problem-solving across the curriculum

Computational thinking is a problem-solving process that involves looking at possible solutions abstractly and algorithmically, in a series of ordered steps. People who are able to think in this way tend to be good at generalizing and transferring this problem-solving process to a wide variety of problems. Computational thinking has been hailed as having the […]

Puzzle-based coding VS creative programming

Creative programming is a knowledge modeling activity with a high cognitive and metacognitive potential. However, when introducing programming to novices, some learning activities are limited to procedural step-by-step puzzle-based coding activities which does not reflect the creative potential of programming. As shown in the figure below, we distinguish five levels of creative engagement in computer programming education […]
