Public media producers from WGBH and Kentucky Educational Television, and researchers from the Education Development Center (EDC) have teamed up to explore young children’s computational thinking (CT) learning and preschool teachers’ CT understanding as they engage with playful prototype hands-on activities and digital tablet apps. The prototypes leverage a charming group of characters from the new media property Monkeying Around. This Spotlight will walk attendees through the exploratory research and development process: what was learned during prototyping and how these research findings informed the continual development of prototypes that promote the under-investigated area of preschoolers’ CT. Pictures, videos, and engagement with the prototypes themselves will allow for a lively presentation and discussion.
