CS Fundamentals – Virtual
February 26 @ 8:30 am - 3:00 pm.
CS Fundamentals is an introductory workshop designed for elementary educators new to teaching computer science who want to explore how to begin teaching Code.org‘s CS Fundamentals curriculum. Over 85,000 teachers have participated in this original workshop already, allowing their schools to grow their in-district capacity for teaching robust CS courses!
Join your peers and experienced facilitators to get a hands-on intro to computer science, pedagogy, overviews of the online curriculum, and Code.org‘s teacher dashboard, as well as strategies for teaching “unplugged” classroom activities.
NOTE: This is a virtual session.
