W2: FLOSS Education and Computational Thinking Workshop
Thursday, 2 June 2016
Organizers:
Jesús Moreno-León (Universidad Rey Juan Carlos & Programamos.es, Spain)
Terhi Kilamo (Tampere University of Technology, Finland)
Gregorio Robles (Universidad Rey Juan Carlos, Spain)

The presence of FLOSS in education has not stopped growing in the last years. The trend has been clear both in K-12 and higher education. While using FLOSS can support teaching computer science and other disciplines, its benefits lie in teaching FLOSS itself as part of the curriculum. An example that can illustrate this situation is the teaching of computational thinking skills through computer programming, which is one of the latest trends in education - for instance, Finland has just added coding and computational thinking as part of the national core curriculum for primary education. This field has been globally addressed almost exclusively with FLOSS technologies, both by using FLOSS platforms and programming languages, such as Scratch or Alice, but also by including in the curriculum the social aspects of software development that characterize FLOSS movements, like sharing and contributing to the community. The purpose of this workshop is to bring together free software experts and educators to discuss challenges that we face in the educational world at present and and that we will face in the future and how they can be undertaken from a FLOSS perspective.
