Daily note for IB Year 2 Standard Level Computer Science

Block 1, Room C152

Thursday 17 December 2020


Daily Note

As today is the day before a well-earned holiday break, I thought we'd do something a bit different and look through some Linux magazines for articles to discuss. This is very similiar to our current event activity we do every Friday. After our current event activity, I'd like to discuss what interests you about computer games and technology in general. 

My hope is we have a relaxing, entertaining class where we talk about our interests and passion in technology!

Our Big idea

The big idea for today is Computational thinking.

The essential questions for this topic are:

How do we think about problems in a way which makes them solvable for a computer?

It takes time to explore and really understand a big idea. If you want to
learn more about computational thinking (which is connected to today's daily note), please click here.
