It is important to remember, "we are all in this together." In this webinar, community members and others joined CS for All Teachers to learn about best-practice strategies for online learning. CS for All Teachers Ambassador Tina Boyle-Whyte and guests discussed strategies for getting great results while teaching in a virtual learning environment, with a focus on middle to high school students as well as the Exploring Computer Science curriculum.
