Abstract: This paper discusses theoretical and curricular aspects of computational thinking in curriculum and challenges noticed on introducing recent ICT perspectives in Australian Schools. It presents the way computational thinking is defined and understood in curriculum documents and a set of relatively new implementations that were designed nationally and in the New South Wales state. Although the importance of computational thinking was highly emphasized, the consistent implementation of this set of educational policies is still largely underperforming.
