Join St. Anne's-Belfield School on July 27 & 28 for a free, immersive workshop aiming to prepare educators to teach tech.
In 2016, Virginia became the first state to add computer science to its core academic requirements for elementary, middle, and high school. What does this mean for your teaching?
Through the study of computer science, students hone their design thinking, logical reasoning, and problem-solving skills in ways that can be applied to solving real world problems in each and every discipline. In today’s tech-savvy world, students must have a deeper understanding of the fundamentals of computing so they are empowered to take control of how tech will affect their lives, their culture, and their future.
The Learn to Learn IV: CS Institute will provide you with an opportunity to learn and get hands on with new computer science skills and tools. After completing the free two-day workshop, you will come away with a lesson plan infused with computer science to try out in your classroom as well as a community of educators who can provide support and guidance for your journey into computer science integration.
