Resumen

En este artículo abordamos algunas preguntas frecuentes relacionadas con el pensamiento computacional y las ciencias de la computación en la escuela desde una perspectiva que busca indagar detrás de las modas que imperan en lo respectivo a los usos de la tecnología en el ámbito escolar. En este sentido, se vuelve necesario involucrarnos en otras discusiones conexas, como la de la robótica escolar o la enseñanza transversal de la disciplina Informática. Se titula "urgente" porque cierta claridad epistemológica es precisa para acompañar los procesos de inserción de estos conceptos en las escuelas argentinas.
