WEBINAR: What Does a CS Classroom Look Like in Elementary School?

Have you considered adding computer science into your elementary classroom? This webinar will showcase how three teachers incorporate CS from different teaching roles in a school and district.  CS for All Teachers Community Ambassador and elementary school teacher, Lisa Rode, will facilitate a discussion with fellow teachers Pete Cookson, Michelle Crabill, and Janice Years looking at the variety of ways and perspectives CS can be incorporated into the elementary curriculum. The webinar will not only include lesson ideas and strategies, but a look at the physical setup of rooms, and consider how to organize materials, and what types of materials are needed to teach CS in the elementary grades. Join us at 7:30pm ET/ 4:30pm PT to learn more, ask questions and share your experiences.

Have you considered using Python with your students but aren't sure where to start? In this webinar we briefly explored the benefits of Python as a programming language for students. Ambassador and Computer Science Educator, Jenn Vermillion, walked participants through the basics needed to begin programming in Python. She also shared teacher friendly resources for continued learning after the webinar, and she shared some of her tried and true classroom Python warm-ups, programming labs, projects, and assessments. The content is most appropriate for upper middle and high school teachers, however it is adaptable for upper elementary teachers.
