Bob Moses has spent his life advocating, organizing, and teaching in pursuit of equality and access for all. Over the last several decades, he has continued that fight for equal opportunity and access, with a similar urgency and fervor. This time, however, the goal is to ensure sufficient access and support for math preparation for minority and socioeconomically disadvantaged students.
By: Janice Mak. How can we expand access to computer science education to all students? First, we have to develop and equip all teachers to bring CS and computational skills to their students.
By: Dacia Jones. Computational thinking can help prepare the next generation for the future of work. It teaches students to process information like a computer would. It'll guide students through a series of steps, similar to an algorithm, to solve open-ended problems.
We live in a world with Smartphones and Smarthomes, and understanding how devices work allows us to approach technology as a partner to help us solve problems. Here's how we can start giving kids these skills sooner rather than later.
By: Grant Smith. Over time, we have gone from a focus on coding (often in isolation) to a more broad idea of computer science as a whole, and now to the refined idea of computational thinking as a foundational understanding for all students.
By: Colin Angevine. How do “code,” “computer science,” and, “computational thinking,” fit together? What is motivating their introduction into schools, and how might they change education? Find out here.
By: Jessica Bobo. A language-rich approach allows students to understand math concepts much more deeply—and applying these six strategies can ensure that all students learn in the early math classroom, regardless of their initial understanding of English.
Looking for on-the-go and fun options for kids to gain or maintain math skills over the summer? These 5 are a great place to start.
