Abstract

Literacy as natural language fluency, is the primary literacy underpinning most learning but there is a new literacy gathering momentum in this information age - Computational Thinking. This paper draws connections between the two; highlighting analogs, differences, and bridges that are transforming both pedagogies while also illustrating a growing educational nexus.
