CESA 5 is proud to partner with Code.Org to offer this interactive and powerful training designed to help teachers implement courses for grades K-5.

Code.org offers high-quality, 1-day workshops for educators and content-area teachers (librarians, tech-ed specialists, etc.). These workshops are led by experienced Code.org facilitators in locations across the United States.

Attendees will learn how to use Code.org's courses to introduce computer science basics in a format that's fun and accessible to the youngest learners (grades K-5). Attendees also receive all the supplies they need to teach—at no cost.

Code.org's Computer Science (CS) Fundamentals curriculum is implemented within Code Studio, our online education platform. This curriculum consists of multiple courses, each of which has about 20 lessons that may be implemented as one unit or over the course of a semester.

By the end of each course, students create interactive games or stories that they can share with anyone. The courses are flexible, too, so educators can adjust them based on their students’ developmental level and prior experience.

All lessons align with all relevant computer science standards, as well as to the ISTE standards. They additionally reinforce concepts and skills taught in other subject areas by integrating national MathEnglish Language Arts, and Science standards.
