Computer Science in PA (K-8 Pathway)

The CSinPA K-8 Computer Science (CS) Pathway supports K-8 educators involved with CS instruction, whether as stand-alone classes or by integrating CS concepts and practices into other content-area instruction. Participants will explore ways of teaching CS while mastering core CS competencies. Over the course, participants set goals for expanding CS access for students and share artifacts to demonstrate progress towards their goals in the development and implementation of a small-scale implementation pilot.

Location: Virtual - the course will be available for 24 hours on the two dates noted.

Target Audience: K-8 educators involved with computer science instruction including: Grade-level teachers, Content-area teachers, Special education teachers, English language (ELL) teaches, Librarians, Specialists, Instructional coaches.

Participants do NOT have to be designated CS or STEM teachers. No prior experience with computer science or computer science instruction is necessary.

Learner Outcomes - Participants will:

  • Access & apply the K-12 Framework and CSTA standards.
  • Initiate and reflect on a small-scale implementation pilot.
  • Develop a plan to close equity gaps in CS education, specifically for students with disabilities and other historically underrepresented populations, such as students of color and female students.
