Computational Thinking Integration

Teachers will be prepared to integrate computational thinking into their K-8 instruction.

Participants work in a crew of 4 teachers. Each crew meets once per week to work through a number of activities together. Crews are made up of educators that teach in the same school or district and have easy access to a common meetup location. Crew members will also spend additional time every week working on independent projects. All projects, activities, and learning are directly applicable to educators working with K-8 students. The expected time commitment is 2-3 hours per week (including both crew and solo time).

As part of the course, participants receive a weekly package containing all of the materials needed for the course. This includes an Ozobot, Makey Makey, Micro:Bit, books, materials, and other fun stuff! That's a $250 value included in the price of the course!
