Abstract: Computational Thinking is increasingly considered a key competency in the 21st century Many countries have initiatives that are aimed to give Computational Thinking skills a proper place in the curriculum However since Computational Thinking is a relatively new skill set, many different conceptualizations of Computational Thinking skills exist, as well as ways on how Computational Thinking skills can be learnt and taught In this symposium we present studies about Computational Thinking skills from three countries: Germany, the US and the Netherlands Together they address research approaches and challenges related to the teaching and learning of Computational Thinking skills and their implications for preparing future teachers to teach Computational Thinking skills
