 Elementary Program – CS Fundamentals Deep Dive

Technology & Innovation in Education (TIE) invites Elementary educators to sign up for a NO COST, one-day workshop that will prepare them to teach computer science as an integral part of math, science and ELA. Code.org engages students in problem solving, critical thinking, analyzing and collaboration. No experience necessary

What’s in a workshop?

Teachers will leave their 6-hour Deep Dive workshop not only with an understanding of the details, philosophy, values, and rationale behind how the CS Fundamentals course is structured but also with a customized plan for how to implement more of the CS Fundamentals courses. Teachers will have ideas for fostering and developing a strong classroom rapport that nurtures learners of all types and strategies for addressing roadblocks to implementation. Ongoing support through the Code.org teacher forum and online support after the workshop will continue to build a strong community of practice and support for participating teachers.

Workshops are open to any elementary school educators who taught some of Code.org’s CS Fundamentals courses. Attending a Code.org Intro workshop is not a required prerequisite.
