In last ten years, CT education have taken place directly in curricula of
some countries on the level of primary education while CT education has
started to be provided with various fields in an integrated way in some
countries. However, there are very limited research-based discussions about
the scope of CT education and proper pedagogic methods for CT which is
still a very new field. Therefore, it is believed that this study will
bring significant contribution to the fund of knowledge in CT education
which is in its infancy phase yet and will lay ground for discussions in
the field.

It is aimed that this book will address to all shareholders of
computational thinking education; namely, families, teachers, teacher
educators, researchers and policy makers.
