Abstract: Computational Thinking has been given an important place in education. Embedding computational thinking in curricula or attainment levels requires attention for this subject in teacher training programmes, as well as in the design of teaching materials that contribute to the development of CT skills. The studies presented in this symposium are examples of how computational thinking can be incorporated into a curriculum, as well as examples in which students in teacher education have actually started working with their pupils on computational thinking skills.
