Young Computational Thinkers

Educators are increasingly being tasked with teaching coding and computational thinking to young students. This hands-on, interactive workshop aims to develop an understanding of computational thinking and the related skills and competencies through the exploration of relevant, ready-to-use activities that connect to a variety of curriculum areas.

Course Outcomes

By the end of this on-demand webinar, you will:

    1. engage in unplugged activities that focus on developing students’ skills of decomposition, abstraction, pattern recognition, algorithmic thinking and logic;
    2. gain access to the activities that are explored, along with materials lists and supporting resources, so you can complete the activities with your students;
    3. discover how to build upon what you already do in the classrooms to develop the foundational knowledge students need to become computational thinkers; and
    4. collaborate with colleagues and engage in meaningful discussions related to digital literacy and computational thinking.
