Research on Multimedia Teaching and Cultivation of Capacity for Computational Thinking

Conference paper
Part of the Lecture Notes in Electrical Engineering book series (LNEE, volume 269)


Computational thinking is a keenly concerned and important concept in current international computer community. The training of computational thinking capability is also an important issue of the current education community. With the further reform in education and the rapid development of information technology, the teaching media with computer multimedia technique at the core has been widely used in education and teaching. The paper introduces characteristics of multimedia teaching and the concept of computational thinking. in addition, on the basis of previous work, try to permeate computational thinking into multimedia teaching to enhance the students’ computational thinking capability.
