1. Computing is a creative human activity. This one is elf explanatory but helps to emphasize how basic this skill is and sadly many are not even proficient in it.
2. Abstraction reduces information and detail to focus on concepts relevant to understanding problem solving. We deal with this every day from test to essay to reports. The sooner this skill is mastered the better off test scores from unit test to the SAT and ACT will be for them,
3. Data And Information facilitate the creation of knowledge. In research fields such as science and math we are so data driven. This skill allows you to pick out the meaning less data and focus on the meat of the text .
4. Digital devices, systems, and the networks that interconnect
them enable and foster computational approaches to
solving problems. The United states has made a huge push to becoming a technical giant in the next 20 years . This base allows us to bring overseas tech and computing jobs back home and placed in sites such as Silicon Valley in California and other technological centers.
