The Computer Science for the Content Classroom in Collaboration With Amazon Future Engineer – Elementary Community of Practice is designed to engage non-computer-science educators of grades PreK–6 across all content areas. The focus of computational thinking and problem-solving will bring awareness that the thinking processes of computer science are applicable to elementary-aged students. In any elementary grade level or content area, this experience will expand participants’ toolbox of effective thinking strategies for students’ learning and success in more advanced coursework. All strategies, digital activities, and digital tools experienced can be leveraged in face-to-face or virtual learning environments.
This Community of Practice requires all participants to have their own device or laptop that can connect to the internet. Participants must bring an acceptable device, power cord, and earbuds/headphones with them to the session. If a district-issued device is being used, be sure to log in to the device on the district network before attending. Device software and preferred web browsers (Chrome or Firefox) need to be up to date.
