Computational thinking development and assessment through tabletop escape games

Divya Menon, Thierry Viéville, Margarida Romero
2019 International Journal of Serious Games  
The development and assessment of computational thinking (CT) is garnering a lot of attention and research since the last decade.  ...  from board games to educational robotic games.  ...  The authors of this paper propose that further research is needed to ascertain how tabletop escape games can help in achieving the learning outcome of developing CT as a competency among K-12 learners.  ...

2020 International Conference on the Foundations of Digital Games  
the research perspective, a few boardgames have been designed with the explicit purpose of supporting CT concepts, the most notable are: Crabs & Turtles [Tsarava et al. 2018 ] and RaBit EscAPE [Apostolellis  ...  Modular boards can support incremental thinking, especially when expanding a map. This is especially true in games where the players have to build the game-board as the game progresses.  ...

Computational Thinking in Education: Where does it Fit? A systematic literary review [article]

James Lockwood, Aidan Mooney
2017 arXiv   pre-print
Computational Thinking (CT) has been described as an essential skill which everyone should learn and can therefore include in their skill set.  ...  It was also found that Computer Science/Computing, which could be the most obvious place to teach CT, has yet to become a mainstream subject in some countries, although this is improving.  ...  Several papers were found that talked about game design and game playing as being useful tools for teaching CT concepts. In this section, we discuss several of them. RaBit EscApe Apostolellis et al.  ...
