Technical artifacts and mental concepts that help to master, and make sense of, the flood of information surrounding us are vital. This article, based on the 1998 IFIP

22. , It should be noted that the young history of informatics didactics in Germany has seen several synonymous transformations of this set of fundamental ideas. Instead of formalization, networking, and automatization, Andreas Schwill called for "language," "structured dissection," and "algorithmization"; A. Schwill, "Fundamentale Ideen der Informatik [Fundamental Ideas of Computer Science], Zentralblatt für Didaktik der Mathematik, no. 1, 1993 (in German); a slightly altered, English version of this paper can be accessed at http://ddi.cs.uni-potsdam.de/Forschung/Schriften EATCS.pdf. In contrast, Peter Hubwieser decided on "representation," "distribution," and "processing" of information; see P. Hubwieser, Didaktik der Informatik [Didactics of Informatics], Springer, 2000 (in German).
