Attention is paid to didactic issues of the development of primary school pupils' algorithmic thinking in the context of the development of reading and mathematical literacy and the development of skills to break down a problem into sub-problems. The inspiration for teaching approaches to the development of the computational thinking of primary school students is the work and ideas of S. Papert, I. Kalaš, M. Resnick, G. Futschek, V. Dagién and other representatives of the so-called logo culture. Attention is also paid to some risks associated with the use of digital technologies in the development of children aged 6-11. The course is designed as interactive lectures with "CSunplugged" examples and exercises. The main attention is paid to didactic issues of development of computational thinking of pupils in the context of the development of reading and mathematical literacy and development of skills to break down the problem into sub-problems. Inspiration for teaching approaches how to develop computational thinking of primary education pupils are based on ideas of S. Papert, I. Kalaš, M. Resnick, G. Futschek, V. Dagiéne and other representatives of the so-called LOGO culture. Attention is also paid to some risks associated with the use of digital technologies in the development of children of younger school age. The course should contribute to the preparation of primary education student teachers for teaching the subject Informatics, which has been completely newly included in the revised curricular document RVP ZV. The course is designed as an interactive lecture with demonstrations and exercises of the type "CSunplugged".
