Visit Website

Welcome to our course designed to equip you with the knowledge and skills to excel at teaching computational thinking to children aged 7-12+. Whether you’re new to this approach or already a passionate educator, this course has something for you. We’ll guide you through engaging ways to introduce computational thinking concepts using simple tools like cards, chalk, and scales that are easily accessible in classrooms and homes.

Drawing from the renowned CS Unplugged website (csunplugged.org), this course demonstrates how to seamlessly integrate computational thinking, from unplugged activities to diving into programming.

Throughout each module, we’ll emphasize the following:

Practical applications of CS Unplugged in classroom programs, structuring the modules with activities that naturally build upon one another. An exploration of why computational thinking holds value in the classroom setting. Unraveling the big picture around computational thinking, including what computation is and how it aligns with different definitions of computational thinking teachers might encounter. Understanding the real-world implications of each concept, how it relates to people, and its relevance in everyday life. Discovering fascinating stories from history that create human connections to computational thinking.

Join us on this educational journey, where you’ll gain valuable insights and resources to inspire young minds with computational thinking concepts. Together, let’s empower the next generation of thinkers and problem solvers.
