Computational Thinking Pathways: Introduction (Session #1)
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. ​​​​This session serves as both the introduction to the sequence or can stand-alone for those who only wish to attend one CT Pathways session.

Session #1 represents the introductory session for the Computational Thinking (CT) Pathways project. Team leads Dr. Jeremy Roschelle and Dr. Quinn Burke will introduce the overall purpose and timeline of the project, and review progress on the NSF-funded CT Pathways project to date.  The session will distinguish between coding as a technical skill, computer science (CS) as an academic discipline, and computational thinking (CT) as an integrative literacy.  Participants will be encouraged to consider what existing resources may be available within their schools and district and begin to sketch out a potential CT Pathway themselves.

Tackling the Digital Deluge: Media Literacy for the Modern Age
In today's world, students need to be more prepared than ever to critically examine the media and messages they consume. Together, we'll look at tools for helping students to analyze the messages and mediums of their media. To truly master these skills, students need to get the chance to apply these skills to creating their own media, however the tools that our students can use to communicate their ideas are constantly expanding. Instead of fretting over which tools to teach our students, we'll examine some skills and mindsets that are broadly transferable across many different types of literacies.

Computational Literacies: Algorithms in Media and Society
Much of the new media your students use every day are computational - social media, photo and video sharing platforms, video games - therefore they are powered by data and algorithms. When students understand the computational design of the media they use, they can be more empowered and critically aware users of technology. Participants will engage in activities and discussion to explore building computational and digital literacies to help our students become more savvy participants in media and society.

It is highly recommended that participants interested in this session also have attended CT Pathways Session #1.

Session #2 delves further into the "Why?" of CS & CT – what is your school’s (and the wider district’s) rationale for offering computer science and computational thinking learning across K-12 grade levels?  Participants are encouraged to collaboratively articulate their own schools’ and district’s reasons for CS and CT, compare these rationales with those of other districts, and then link these various reasons to particular districtwide stakeholders. What are the reasons that will best engage students and teachers? Administrators? Parents/ families and the wider business community?

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.

Challenge Based Learning is an approach to solving real-world problems that engages students in developing questions to guide investigations and acting on solutions based on their findings, and many connections exist between CBL and the vision of the Next Generation Science Standards. The Challenge Based Learning framework can be used to root science instruction in the explanation of phenomena and problem solving, and give agency to students to lead their own learning.

In this hands-on workshop we’ll watch youth-produced 360º media created as part of Digital Promise Global's 360º Story Lab, figure out what makes it impactful, and consider the unique challenges of 360º storytelling. We'll then embark on an adventure to capture 360º images and video that can be experienced in a headset and online. We'll practice feedback routines and have fun in the process of discovering the creative possibilities that exist in the 360º world around us. Participants will leave with resources and an invitation for students to join MY World 360º, a global network of 360º storytellers.

What Does REAL Collaboration Look Like in the Classroom?
Students don't know how to collaborate and learn without teacher support. We all know we need to have students work together, but how do we get them to work and learn together? In this workshop, we consider what we want to happen and discuss how to get it to happen. We’ll go through collaboration rubrics, learn about ways to see if collaboration is occurring, and support students in the process.

Photogrammetry - making 3D models from photos
Presented by Jim Pedrech

Photogrammetry is the act of building 3D models from photos. While you can make the process complicated if you want, you can also keep things really simple (and free!).

You can upload the models to 3D repositories, embed them in Office programs, or paint directly on them. This new technology is being used in lots of fields, especially archeology, engineering, museum curation, and the sciences.

In this session, you will learn the process of photogrammetry and attempt to make a 3D model from pictures you will take. Because Monterey’s cloudy weather is perfect for what we need to do...field trip!!!!

Sketchnoting
Sketchnoting increases retention and focus as well as improves memory. It is great way to synthesize information and focus on big ideas. It helps with concentration, stimulates neural pathways, and quite literally makes us smarter. Curious about sketchnoting but not sure where to start? Are saying “But I can’t draw”; don’t worry! Come join a hands-on session for beginner sketchnoters.  

Note: It would be helpful to download the Tayasui Sketches app (free or school version is fine) if you want to try it digitally instead of analog.
