Computational Thinking has now become a key competency for this 21st century. Positions adopted by the most successful educational systems oblige us to carry out a situational analysis of how we find ourselves with respect to this trend and how we project ourselves with respect to it. The reason for this research focuses on a theoretical and practical approach to Teacher Training in the Faculty of Education Sciences in the specialty of Primary Education in order to develop Computational Thinking. In the first instance, the Computational Thinking test was applied, identifying relevant elements in students in training that contribute to enriching the curricular proposal of teacher training that is currently used, in view of this we use the CTFP (Computational Thinking Framework Pedagogical) model to establish transversal elements to be incorporated in subjects linked to Computational Thinking.
