Big data and deep learning
technology have once again set off a boom in artificial intelligence.
Artificial intelligence has been a major development strategy in many
countries. The Chinese government has also written this into the “13th Five-Year
Plan”, and the Ministry of Education has also launched with the reform measures
for artificial intelligence education, the deep integration of “artificial
intelligence education” has been opened. In this context, China’s artificial
intelligence disciplines and professional construction have set off a major
reform storm from colleges to basic education. The revision of this high school
artificial intelligence textbook was carried out in this context. The biggest
feature of this high school artificial intelligence textbook revision is the
integration of computational thinking into the core literacy design.
Computational thinking is an indispensable ability of learners in the 21st
century. As a typical “digital aboriginal”, high school students must have
computational thinking in order to cope with the challenges brought about by
the rapid changes in social technology in the future. At present, all developed
countries have incorporated computational thinking into national curriculum
standards. China has also written computational thinking into national
curriculum standards and listed it as one of the core literacies of information technology disciplines.
