In this half-hour presentation at Education Week’s Leaders To Learn From event in Washington, Aileen Owens, director of technology and innovation for Pennsylvania’s South Fayette school district, describes her efforts around cultivating students’ “computational thinking.” At the event, Owens was recognized as an exceptional school district leader for her leadership in innovation in curriculum.

Since being hired at South Fayette in 2010, Owens’ passion has been on cultivating students’ “computational thinking.” That includes coding. But the real emphasis is on helping students learn to problem-solve; to think algorithmically, in step-by-step sequences; to debug and revise; and to work with abstract concepts.
