Hey Siri! How Did you Do That? ft. Dr. Julie Mueller (Laurier)

By Stephen G Hurley

Host Stephen Hurley scans the education ecosystem, looking for the people and ideas that are starting to change the way we think about teaching, learning, schools and communities

Our world has become increasingly complex with most day to day decisions requiring at least some digital literacy. Computational Thinking, or an approach to problem solving that uses a logical framework that allows a computer to solve the problem, has become a fundamental skill for learning and future success. This talk will explore what skills are required for this type of thinking and how they are represented across the elementary curriculum and in teacher preparation.

Dr. Julie Mueller is a Professor and Associate Dean with the Faculty of Education at Laurier.
