In view of the current situation of College Students’ lack of “computational thinking” ability, this paper analyses the factors affecting the cultivation of Computational Thinking ability. Taking the course “Computer Application Foundation” as an example, this paper expounds the links and standards that need to be paid attention to in the cultivation of Computational Thinking ability, as well as some problems that need to be paid attention to in the process of cultivating computational thinking. Through this paper, more scholars have joined the research field of Computational Thinking ability.
