Gamified Technology Probes for Scaffolding Computational Thinking
Springer International Publishing
This paper advances the idea of gamified probes for scaffolding children’s computational thinking, and specifically algorithmic thinking. The paper presents the making of such a probe for a sorting algorithm. The making of the probe was alternated with its evaluation, and realized in the MakerSpace of the University of Bozen-Bolzano through a collaborative interdisciplinary effort of computer-science students and researchers from different research areas.
