What members learned from this tutorial

When students are overwhelmed in problem solving, whilst generally supporting all 4 process steps, I think decomposition and abstraction are 2 key points that can help reduce their anxiety. - Heidi NSW

Pattern recognition was particularly something of interest to me as I work with some students who have ASD and I think this will be a useful strategy.  Thank you! - Yolande QLD

What computational thinking is and how to apply decomposition, pattern recognition, abstraction and algorithm design to further support students - Riccarda VIC
