There is a Centre for computational thinking at CMU. There is a recent report of a workshop on the scope and nature of computational thinking1. Google has a useful resource for computational thinking. The San Diego Supercomputer centre provides a set of resources for schools.

The term appears in the glossary of the Australian Curriculum.
