Abstract : Technologies are growing rapidly and its applications are enormous in different strata of society. In this paper especially we are talking about educational technologies. We could see there is a significant change in elementary and secondary education over the past 10 years like classroom teaching, information and communications technology (ICT), and now everything is all about the cloud computing. Cloud computing technologies play a big role in the development of educational technologies. CT-Blocks is a virtual private cloud system developed for K-12 schools. The importance of the word computational thinking makes everyone to the development of educational tools to impart computational thinking to primary, middle and high school students. CT-Blocks is a cloud and block based programming language that reinforces the word computational thinking in all types of users. © 2018 IEEE.
