This is the third quarterly online Sharing Inspiration conference of 2021. Computational thinking and coding have already penetrated the curricula in the schools of most countries, but they may not yet be mainstream. Should these topics have the same priorities as language or science and mathematics? Could computational thinking be the vehicle for delivering 'thinking skills' in the classroom? What motivates young people to write a program?
