Computer Science & Computational Thinking (CS/CT) Professional Development at IU13
Professional development opportunities will be facilitated and/or hosted by IU13 to support districts who aim to increase the number of educators prepared to teach CS/STEM courses, integrate CS/STEM principals into their courses, and expand access and opportunities to high-quality CS/STEM programming for all students.
IU13 will offer districts a series of professional development and hands-on workshop sessions in order to:
- Examine, use, and demonstrate knowledge of the Computer Science Teachers Association Standards (endorsed by Pennsylvania, January 2018), the K-12 CS Framework and the Computational Thinking Toolkit, developed through collaborative efforts by CSTA and ISTE.
- Understand the need for computer science & computational thinking as a core literacy
- Develop a vision and comprehensive plan for computer science using the SCRIPT framework
- Explore and begin to use resources and hardware to design and implement CS/STEM learning opportunities for ALL students.
