WeDo 2.0 supports pupils in developing and applying computing skills as they explore, define, design and code solutions to real-world STEM challenges.

LEGO® Education WeDo 2.0 helps primary school pupils to develop computational thinking techniques by encouraging them to explore, build, code, test and refine solutions to engaging challenges that fulfill STEM and computing curriculum requirements. WeDo 2.0 now includes eight exciting new modules specifically designed to teach coding at Key Stage 2 through developing pupils’ abilities to apply computational thinking.

Computational thinking projects are currently available on  iOS and Chromebooks. More operating systems will be coming soon.

 
 

Computational Thinking

We all know that it is vital that children learn the skills they'll need to thrive in a future where technology is fully integrated into every aspect of life.

To truly harness the power of technology children first need to learn how to think through complex problems and define possible solutions in a way that a computer can understand, test and implement for them. Coding is simply the means by which we instruct and control  technology.  The critical skill is the way of thinking - computational thinking. It's an approach to problem-solving that can help pupils in all STEM subjects and beyond.

The 5 Core Components of Computational Thinking

Decomposition

Breaking down a problem into smaller parts.

Generalisation

Recognising patterns to identify possible solutions.

Algorithmic Thinking

Defining a sequence of steps to solve the problem.

Evaluation

Improvements and refining ideas.

Abstraction

Conceptualising and communicating the solution or problem.

"A high-quality computing education equips pupils to use computational thinking and creativity to understand and change the world."
