Workshop på 12th International Conference on Networked Learning”(How) Can computational things be utilized in networked learning”.

Participants: Ane Bjerre Odgaard, Roland Hachmann, Stig Børsen Hansen og Nina Bonderup Dohn


Computational things are physical artifacts that use computer programs to bring observable changes in themselves or other artifacts. Typically, the interaction between the computational thing and the environment is mediated through sensors and actuators. Lego Mindstorms, Kubo robots, e-textiles, as well as things integrating Arduinos and Microbits are all examples of computational things.

This workshop aims to discuss with participants what roles (if any) “computational things” can have in networked learning practice and, vice versa, what roles (if any) networked learning can have in learning with “computational things.”

Symposium på EARLI SIG 10, 21 and 25 Conference 2020,”Investigating computational thinking in classrooms: conceptual issues and empirical processes.”


In this symposium, we investigate theoretical conceptualizations and empirical realizations of CT in classrooms spanning the educational system, in courses with and without coding. The first paper discusses how to delimit CT from other forms of thinking. The second paper presents a systematic literature review of pedagogical approaches in various analogue and digital learning designs. The third paper articulates pedagogical points for teaching (with) CT, based on research on specific learning designs. The fourth paper presents an empirical study of the use of CT across different learning settings in an interdisciplinary project course.

Paper presenters:

Filosofiske forudsætninger i ”Computational thinking” - en gammelkendt diskussion i ny forklædning? Ved Nina Bonderup Dohn


Computational thinking (CT) is claimed to be a problem-solving method applicable across disciplines, consisting of decomposition skills, abstraction, pattern recognition, modeling, algorithm design, automation, and generalization. CT is not "thinking like a computer" but the processes involved in preparing a problem so that a computer can solve it. What understanding of thinking, problems, and problem solving is implicit in the approach? How does this understanding differ from the view that Dreyfus criticized as early as 1972? Is the discussion about CT an old familiar in new clothes?
