CS First is a free web-based program that exposes students to computer science through video tutorials and modules that students participate in as after-school, in-school and summer programs.
Computer science is more than just coding. Thinking like a computer scientist involves being creative and thinking collaboratively about a problem in order to solve it.
The most compelling topics among educators who embrace technology for learning and teaching are not about the tech at all, but about the students. Here’s a list of the hottest topics in ed tech for 2017.
Incorporate coding, computational thinking and computer science into all content areas, including math, science and social studies, with or without a device.
Empower students as game creators by following three simple steps: create, test, iterate.
You don’t have to be a computer scientist to teach coding, and students don't need devices to learn coding skills.
Elementary school students are the perfect age to learn coding. Here are five reasons why you should teach K-5 students to code.
In this EdTekTalk, Code.org and Hour of Code co-founder Hadi Partovi explains why schools in the digital age must teach computer science as a foundational skill, just like biology and math — and why the U.S. is missing a major economic opportunity if they don't.
Many organizations, from Disney to Khan Academy, have joined Code.org to offer hundreds of activities centered on coding and computational thinking.
One day soon, computer science will be a required course at all U.S. high schools. That concept has school technology associate Trish Cloud thinking about how to prepare even her youngest learners for their future.
Coding education over the past five years is igniting worldwide interest as teachers gain expertise, and new products make it possible for teens and college students to improve the world right in their classrooms.
Code.org believes that in today's technology-dependent world, all students should be learning computer science. You don't need to be a computer expert to learn how to teach your students coding and other CS skills with these free student courses, professional development, inspirational materials and community.
In the universe of computer science, the definition and application of computational thinking is widely acknowledged as a pathway to problem solving, easily transferable to other academic subjects and even everyday life.
In the digital age, computational thinking — the ability to solve problems using technology, among other things — will be a necessary skill set for students, teachers and citizens.
Many educators believe students should be taught coding as young as kindergarten to build critical-thinking skills and prepare for careers of the future.
Computer science skills empower students to become proactive learners and creators instead of mere consumers. In honor of Computer Science Education Week, here are some resources to help you incorporate computer science into your classroom.
Computational thinking enables students to recognize when and how technology can boost their own critical-thinking, creative and problem-solving skills and help them devise innovative solutions to real-world problems.
To get the best results from pair programming, remember that communication is key — and good manners don’t hurt either!
When students pair up to learn programming, they gain more confidence, achieve higher test scores and have more fun than students who learn on their own.
Coding is too important a skill to relegate to after-school clubs. See how one school district integrates it into the core curriculum to give all students — including young children, girls, students with disabilities and English language learners — the chance to try computer science and programming.
ISTE and the Computer Science Teachers Association collaborated on a series of resources designed to help prepare young learners to become computational thinkers who understand how today's digital tools can help solve tomorrow's problems.
Computer science education is becoming increasingly accepted in schools and is now a more integral part of the ed tech community.
Choosing the right STEM tools for your students can be intimidating. Here’s a short guide to the factors you should consider, from grade level and subject area to cost.
Reaching beyond school walls opens up a world of vibrant learning communities in which educators share ideas and propel each other to grow.
If educators can capture kids’ passion for Pokemon Go, imagine the learning and engagement they can create. Here are 14 ways you can use the augmented reality game to promote and build excitement about your school and drive learning for students.
