Abstract

In this paper, we present a CARES model for computing education. It consists of three layers: core layer ("think"), course layer ("learn") and career/development layer ("develop"). The core layer is concerned with two fundamental thinking skills: computational thinking and creative thinking. The course layer is about the curriculum. The career/development layer is for development in four major areas: Application (applying knowledge), Research (advancing knowledge), Entrepreneurship (innovating/realizing knowledge) and Service (serving with knowledge). A freshman seminar subject has been designed based on the application, research and entrepreneurship elements of the CARES model, and the teaching experience for this subject is presented.
