Creative Thinking, Coding for all, Elementary Student, 21st century


This study explores the influence of coding for all on enhancing creative thinking skills
among elementary students. 21st Century skills are essential abilities that help people work well
with others, think of new ideas, speak clearly, and solve problems in this era world. It focuses in
particular on the key soft skills competencies known as the "4Cs": creativity, critical thinking,
collaboration, and communication. They are called "soft skills" because they are about working with
people and ideas, not just using machines or following set rules. Creative thinking development is
crucial for elementary school students as positively impacts their growth and learning process.
According to Resnick et al. (2009), about the theory of coding for All, the aspiration to provide equal
access and opportunity to the entire student population, regardless of their background or interests.
This idea is based on the belief that coding for all is not only a technical skill, but also a powerful
tool for stimulating creative thinking skill. The objective of this study is: 1. Identify Coding for all
can increase the creativity of elementary students. 2. Improving of Creative Thinking Skill through
Coding for all at Elementary Students. Following a search, a large amount of literature was found,
and after selection, it included the following 5 sources about improving creative thinking skill by
using coding for all. This study succeeded found 4 results from 5 article sources. The implication of
this study is to provide socialization and innovation related to interactive learning media that
supports the improvement of creative thinking in students with the aim of shaping student creativity
and getting to know more intelligence in each student.
