Regardless of what subject you teach, computer science is foundational knowledge for all students in the 21st century. Incorporating it in your classroom will give your students a huge leg up. Besides, this is a subject the kids love learning.
With the help of Code.org, the Institute for School Partnership is providing a no cost, one-day workshop for elementary (K-5) school teachers interested in teaching computer science. In-person instruction from an experienced computer science facilitator, including an intro to computer science pedagogy, overview of the online curriculum, teacher dashboard, and strategies for teaching “unplugged” classroom activities.
