Computational thinking and problem solving are important skills for all 21st century learners. Young learners can develop and strengthen these skills through computer programming, or coding. In this course, participants will explore a variety of digital and “unplugged” resources available to educators and their students at no cost. Additionally, participants will discover best practices and strategies to integrate coding into the classroom. This course aligns to the new K-12 Computer Science and Digital Fluency Learning Standards focusing on the concept area of Computational Thinking and is appropriate for all K-5 educators (no experience required).
The content of this course will be delivered through synchronous meetings and asynchronous work in Google Classroom.
