Connolly, Cornelia; Hijón-Neira, Raquel; Grádaigh, Seán Ó. – International Journal of Mobile and Blended Learning, 2021
Research on the role of mobile learning in computational thinking is limited, and even more so in its use in initial teacher education. Aligned to this there is a need to consider how to introduce and expose pre-service teachers to computational thinking constructs within the context of the subject area they will teach in their future classrooms.…
