Dear Colleagues,

I am writing to ask you to contribute to the book *Handbook of Research on
Teaching Computational Thinking in Primary Education**.*

Please see the
http://www.igi-global.com/publish/call-for-papers/call-details/2017   for
the full version of CfP

or here the short version:

In last ten years, CT education have taken place directly in curricula of
some countries on the level of primary education while CT education has
started to be provided with various fields in an integrated way in some
countries. However, there are very limited research-based discussions about
the scope of CT education and proper pedagogic methods for CT which is
still a very new field. Therefore, it is believed that this study will
bring significant contribution  to the fund of knowledge in CT education
which is in its infancy phase yet and will lay ground for discussions in
the field.

 *Recommended topics include, but are not limited to the following:*

Contributors are welcome to submit chapters on the following topics
relating to teaching computational thinking in primary education:

­        Defining computational thinking

­        Critics of teaching computational thinking in primary education

­        Limitations and power of computational thinking

­        What computational thinking means for primary education

­        Assesing computational thinking

­        How computational thinking can be facilitated in primary education

­        Pedagogies for teaching computational thinking

­        Game design and computational thinking

­        How can we integrate computational thinking into different subjects

­        Teaching computational thinking across different learning contexts

­        Relationship of computer programming to computational thinking

­        Teaching coding in primary education

­        Relationship of computational thinking to problem solving

­        The use of visual programming languages to promote computational
thinking in primary education

­        Cognitive benefits of learning programming

­        How to bring computational processes to bear on problem solving

*Submission Procedure *

Researchers and practitioners are invited to submit *on or before January
30, 2015*, a 2-3 page chapter proposal clearly explaining the mission and
concerns of his or her proposed chapter. Authors of accepted proposals will
be notified by *February 28, 2016* about the status of their proposals and
sent chapter guidelines. Full chapters are expected to be submitted by *May
30, 2016*. All submitted chapters will be reviewed on a double-blind review
basis. Contributors may also be requested to serve as reviewers for this
