Computational thinking (CT) in fundamental education is an emerging topic in research about educational policies and practices around the globe. In Luxembourg, CT was introduced as a learning topic in fundamental schools in 2020. This situation offers a unique opportunity to investigate how various factors influence emerging CT teaching practices. Based on a revised version of the Technology Acceptance Model (Inan & Lowther, 2010), a research-based path model of CT teaching was developed, emphasising the influence of teachers’ beliefs and readiness on CT teaching practices. It investigated the effects of demographic factors, teaching approaches, ICT proficiency, previous CT experience, and overall support for technology integration on readiness, beliefs, and CT teaching practices. The current study reveals that teachers are interested in teaching CT. However, they hold a widespread misconception (Fessakis & Prantsoudi, 2019), confusing CT with programming or technology use. ICT proficiency is indeed associated with beliefs about CT and readiness for teaching CT. Readiness for teaching CT, beliefs about CT, and previous CT experience are the strongest predictors for CT teaching practices. In line with Cuny et al. (2010), the current study highlights the importance of training teachers to accurately define CT and to identify good practices. [less ▲]

In this article, we present the objectives and first achievements of the PIAF project supported by the European Union and aiming at developing computational and algorithmic thinking in basic education. This project brings together researchers in educational sciences and computer science from four countries (Belgium, France, Germany and Luxembourg) around the theme of teacher training. More concretely, the aim is to define a framework (competency framework, pedagogical scenarios) enabling teachers to (i) appropriate the concept of computational and algorithmic thinking and (ii) implement learning activities that promote the development of this kind of thinking in children.

Dans cet article, nous présentons les objectifs et premières réalisations du projet PIAF soutenu par l’Union Européenne et visant à développer l’apprentissage de la pensée informatique et algorithmique dans l’enseignement fondamental. Ce projet rassemble des chercheur·e·s en sciences de l’éducation et en informatique, provenant de quatre pays (Allemagne, Belgique, France et Luxembourg), autour du thème de la formation des enseignant·e·s. Plus concrètement, il s’agit de définir un cadre (référentiel de compétences, scénarios pédagogiques) permettant aux enseignant·e·s de (i) s’approprier le concept de pensée informatique et algorithmique et de (ii) mettre en œuvre des activités d’apprentissage favorisant le développement de cette pensée chez l’enfant.
