The Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) India has started an education initiative, CSpathshala, to develop a modern computing curriculum and teaching material for K-12.
The primary goal of teaching Computational Thinking is to develop ability to solve problems and express the solution in the form of an algorithm that is precise and can be understood by a human or a machine. Experts feel that this does not require the use of computers and can be taught as a series of interesting, engaging and fun activities. This also overcomes the hurdle of having to learn programming before being able to explore ideas and articulating solutions as algorithms. We want students to realize that they are capable of finding solutions to problems on their own, rather than being given a solution to apply to the problem.
