Abstract: Robotics curricula offer rich, applied opportunities to learn computational thinking. However, these opportunities are likely to vary, as educators adapt curricula to their learning environments. A comparative case study approach is used to examine how two middle school Technology Education teachers conceptualize and articulate instructional goals when incorporating a novel computer science curriculum in their robotics classrooms. Evidence suggests tacit differences in teacher’s framing of instructional goals around computational thinking, with implications for curricular design.
