The sessions are aimed at proposing critical reflections around the concept of "computational thinking". Computational thinking, that makes use of IT technologies at the same time being independent from them, the use of typical concepts and intellectual tools now well identified for the definition, the analysis and the solution of general problems. Thinking computationally doesn't mean limiting the creativity and imaginative power of human thinking but rather extending its properties and potentials through the understanding of some fundamental criteria with which problems are solved and systems are created, using computer science.
