Dive Deep into Illinois’ New Computer Science Standards (South Cook ISC)

August 11 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm


Looking to learn more about Illinois’ new CS learning standards? This two-part interactive workshop will offer a chance for curious teachers and instructional coaches to dive deep into how these guidelines will apply to students at all grade levels.

During the first half of this session, we’ll illustrate how you can connect your existing programming to the standards while simultaneously refining your district’s overall CS learning vision. Along the way, we’ll explore where your program may already be aligned to the standards, and where you may need to fill in some gaps before the standards come into force. Then, in the second half of the session, we’ll investigate tools and curricular options to directly address the standards, both in standalone CS programming as well as through core curriculum integration. You’ll walk away with both a high-level map of your district or school’s Computer Science plan, and enough details and resources to begin implementing it in the near term.
