Storyboard Text

  • Mary and Joe were playing a very complex board game together and had to work together to solve a crime. 
  • Sure!
  • Mary, could you go grab some sodas from the fridge?
  • It's really fun! It's a lot harder than my computer games though. I am doing a lot of computational thinking that usually my computer would do for me.
  • Hi sweetie! How is the game? What have you been doing to solve the crime?
  • Hey dad! I think I am using computational thinking in this board game. But can I do that without trying?
  • On her way back to the game room she saw her dad who was watching a TV show on computational thinking.
  • Yes you can! This shows says it can happen spontaneously using non-computational media like board games!
  • Well my dad told me we are using computational thinking. And he told me there are 5 categories: conditional logic, algorithm building, debugging, simulation, and distributed computation.
  • What took so long?
  • Woah cool! From now on I am going to look for CT in everyday life and even try and monitor my elementary students CT.
  • Dad, are computers better at CT than humans? Also, do the makers of the board game plan what kind of CT will be used?
  • Mary still had two questions about CT...
  • I'll research that and get back to you later!
  • To be continued...
