Workshop Description:

Code.org CS Fundamentals is a series of courses designed for elementary students to learn computer science concepts. Each course is age-appropriate and provides both "unplugged" classroom activities and online puzzles. This training will provide you with all you need to teach these courses in your school or classroom. The workshop includes an intro to computer science and pedagogy, an overview of the online curriculum and teacher dashboard, and strategies for teaching computer science concepts to elementary students. Many hands-on activities are included over the course of the day. You will receive a printed curriculum guide with lesson plans, classroom supplies, a certificate of completion and a bag of Code.org swag.
