Illinois’ New Computer Science Standards
May 17 @ 3:30 pm - 4:30 pmFree
To ensure students are equitably prepared for the demands of the future workforce, ISBE has published a new set of standards for computer science learning in K-12 public schools. How can we as school leaders and classroom educators develop programs that align with these standards and meet expectations? Come discover how as we strive toward creating CS learning experiences that are enriching and engaging for all students.
During this 1-hour session, we will:
* Unpack the CS Standards to reveal their organization and integration across grade levels;
* Demonstrate how to interpret each standard’s exception to determine how your current CS offerings match up;
* Model the planning involved with developing a scope and sequence that ensures all standards are addressed at each grade level; and
* Explore resources that teachers can implement in classrooms to help students achieve mastery of the standards.
Illinois educators who attend live can earn 1.0 PD credit.
