Coding is not just about learning to write a program, it's about connecting with the learning and building relationships in the process. It can create engaging ways for students to work on their collaboration, critical thinking and problem-solving skills.
What do you get when you combine a makerspace, science fair and coding bootcamp? South Fayette School District, the best example of integrated computational thinking we’ve seen in K-12 education. Learn more in the second entry of our 6-part #RemakeLearning series here.
On this recent Tuesday, as part of Computer Science Education Week, these professional athletes traded in their pads and helmets to be Computer Science, Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (C-STEM) Ambassadors. Learn more here.
An Hour of Code is a great way to get started, but to celebrate @CSEdWeek we wanted to compile a few more resources for those looking to dive a bit deeper into computer science.
For anyone with an interest in coding, an instructional, user-friendly book like this is a great -- and very affordable -- place to launch the skill of app development.
By: Hannah DeRusha. Breaking down big ideas into bite-sized applications can help introduce young learners to a new way of thinking. My kindergarten and first-grade students are learning about human nature this year through experimental play using robots.
How can parents help introduce and get their young children interested in coding, while still limiting time on a device? Cubetto is a wooden robot designed to teach kids as young as three years old to code without a screen.
