Cross Curricula ‘computational thinking’

Psychologists sometimes react by saying, Oh you mean the transfer problem. But I do not mean anything analogous to experiments on whether students who were taught algebra last year automatically learn geometry more easily than students who spent last year doing gymnastics. I am asking whether one can identify and teach (or foster the growth of) something other than algebra or geometry, which, once learned, will make it easy to learn algebra and geometry. No doubt, this other thing (let s call it the MWOT) can only be taught by using particular topics as vehicles.
