About CTE2018

CoolThink@JC is created and funded by The Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust, and co-created by The Education University of Hong Kong, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and City University of Hong Kong. CoolThink@JC aims at inspiring students to apply digital creativity in their daily lives and preparing them to tackle future challenges in any fields. Promoting computational thinking (CT) education can move students beyond mere technology consumption and into problem-solving, creation and innovation. This 4-year initiative will train 100 teachers for the benefit of 16,500 upper primary students at 32 schools. Insights and curricular materials from this initiative will be shared openly with educators across the territory.
International Conference on Computational Thinking Education 2018 (CTE2018) is the second international conference organized by the CoolThink@JC Programme for worldwide sharing of ideas as well as dissemination of findings and outcomes on the implementation of computational thinking development. CTE2018 will comprise keynote speeches, panel discussions, paper presentations, and exhibitions. All the accepted papers in the conference will be published in ISBN-coded proceedings.
