My colleague Mike DeSchryver and I wrote a article arguing for the use of new literacies and computational thinking to promote creative thinking. We discuss the design decisions we make to integrate computational thinking through new literacies and computational thinking for inservice teachers enrolled in our Masters in Educational Technology (MAET) program at Michigan State University.
