Computational Thinking Pathways: WHAT (Session #3)

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Feedback form is now closed.
Note: The Computational Thinking Pathways guided activities are presented as a sequence for developing inclusive pathways to ensure all students in a school or district have access to and develop competency in computational thinking and computer science. It is highly recommended that participants interested in this have also attended CT Pathways Sessions #1 and #2.

Session #3 explores the "What?" of CS & CT-- how do we define these skills and how do we develop a coherent pathway across grades K-12 in which students have the opportunity to build upon prior understandings and practices? Participants will explore the way other districts and organizations have operationally defined CS and CT, and consider existing frameworks and initiatives within their own schools that could be potentially leveraged to integrate CS/ CT across subjects and grade levels, moving from tools to themes to specific grade band competencies.


Did you have trouble deciding on a session today? Was there something you wanted to explore but ran out of time? This is an opportunity to let us know what you want to see tomorrow!

Tomorrow's sessions will be a mix of topics selected from the topic picker on the party deck and the results of this survey. So let us know what session you would like to see repeated tomorrow and visit the party deck to participate in the topic picker!
