Taught by Code.org facilitators who are experienced computer science educators, our workshops will prepare you to teach the Code.org curriculum.
IT-oLogy will conduct a no cost 4 hour hands-on “Introduction to Computer Science” workshop on for teachers to infuse project base learning activities into their lesson plans. Not only will you learn introductory computer science concepts such as loops, conditionals and functions, you'll learn how to teach computer science skills such as, algorithm, critical thinking, logic, persistence, creativity in problem-solving through collaboration. These skills will be addressed through hands-on "unplugged" and online activities. The curriculum provided by Code.org aligns to the CSTA Computer Science Standards with multiple connections to content standards in ELA, Mathematics and Science.
After the workshop is completed and the attendance roster is submitted to Code.org, each attendee, after completing 10 levels, will receive (at no cost):
