Advanced Coding in the Classroom: Embedding Computational Thinking

$147.00$397.00

Explore a variety of ways to bring elements of coding into the classroom so that students can build the foundational skills and ways of thinking that underpin computational science.

Unit Topics:

  • Introduction to Coding and Computational Thinking
  • Coding and Math
  • Coding and Science
  • Coding and Language Arts
  • Coding and Social Science
  • Creating Integrating Lessons for your Students

This course is designed for educators K-12. No prior coding experience is necessary but you may also be interested in Coding and Design or Introduction to Coding in the Classroom.

All references and materials are located online.

Time commitment: 3-5 hours (approx.) per module.  18-30 hours (approx) for the complete course.
(Note: The facilitated, for Credit, course options have specific timeframes and deadlines)

Description

The goal of this course is to provide teachers with a range of strategies and tools that they can use in different subject areas to build that foundational capacity. From art to social studies, there is ‘room’ in the school day and the curriculum to start students on a path towards basic literacy (at a minimum) and mastery (for those who are so inclined) of the code that keeps just about every aspect of our modern world running. We expect that every student will become numerate though few will become mathematicians; we can find a way to ensure that every student has a conceptual understanding of code.

Learning Outcomes:

After completing this course, you will be able to:

  • Identify essential concepts and define key terms related to computer science and computational thinking;
  • Recognize that coding and computational thinking can support many elements of the current curriculum;
  • Develop, adapt and/or apply lesson plans that incorporate coding/computational thinking into the mainstream curriculum in core academic subjects;
  • Apply and integrate computational thinking and coding concepts and approaches to learning and projects in varied classes and subject areas;
  • Identify resources to support their integration of coding into different curricular areas;
  • Use coding as a way to deepen and extend student learning; and
  • Understand computational thinking as an approach to problem-solving.
