Abstract: In 2015 a curriculum framework for Computational Thinking was developed for lower secondary education in the Netherlands. The framework is based on ISTE and CSTA, translated for the curriculum in the Netherlands and validated by experts, teachers, teacher educators and publishers. Based on this validated curriculum a new learning trajectory was designed for primary education, in collaboration with teachers and principals from three schools.
