The objective of this article was to determine the level of development of computational thinking of teachers who are in service and who are studying for a postgraduate degree in Education. The research approach was quantitative, descriptive, and non-experimental, the sample consisted of 100 teachers from different educational levels (initial, primary, secondary, and higher education), where the Aman Yadav questionnaire of computer attitudes towards Computational Thinking for in-service teachers was applied as an instrument. This instrument allows us to identify the five dimensions of computational thinking, in terms of definitions, level of comfort, level of interest, use in the classroom, and professional/future use, establishing an interest in the implementation of defined strategies to incorporate them into their teaching work. The results obtained showed that a total of 67 of the 100 teachers surveyed are at a regular level of computational thinking.
