Why teach computer science in elementary school?
Code.org has developed elementary school curriculum that allows even the youngest students to explore the limitless world of computing. Courses blend online, self-guided and self-paced tutorials with “unplugged” classroom activities that require no computer. Each course consists of 20 lessons.
We welcome elementary school teachers to sign up for a free, high-quality professional development workshop from an experienced computer science facilitator. The workshop will provide an intro to computer science, pedagogy, an overview of the online curriculum, teacher dashboard, and strategies for teaching “unplugged” classroom activities.
What else you’ll get from this workshop (at no cost to you)
Workshop attendees will also receive a bag of Code.org swag and printed curriculum guide containing course lesson plans. You will also receive a certificate of completion, as well as classroom supplies for the unplugged activities.
