"Computational thinking will be a fundamental skill used by everyone in the mid 21st Century. Just like reading, writing, and arithmetic.”
"The goal is to use computational thinking to forge ideas that are at least as "explicative" as the Euclid-like constructions (and hopefully more so) but more accessible and more powerful.”
"Computational thinking involves the ability to abstract from specific programming languages the computational behaviors that can be implemented through many different languages."
-Marina Umaschi Bers
"In our view, computational fluency involves not only an understanding of computational concepts and problem-solving strategies, but also the ability to create and express oneself with digital technologies."
"Computational thinking through the lens of a child, lends itself to a playground of creativity, imagination, and the wonder of play.”

"Computational thinking is going to be a defining feature of the future—and it's an incredibly important thing to be teaching to kids today.... Computational thinking is going to be needed everywhere. And doing it well is going to be a key to success in almost all future careers.”

“It’s easy to think of coding as something you do on your own, just you and the machine. But coding is a really social practice."
"A little bit of computing goes a long way."
