Teachers from Ardmore, Stevenson, Lake Hills and Sherwood have been taking a K-5 Computer Science and Computational Thinking Course! In this two-day training, the teachers learned the fundamentals of computational thinking, coding and physical computing. As a part of our district’s commitment to high-quality instruction, these four schools will each have a K-5 computer science specialist starting this fall. With the implementation of this new, innovative program, students will be learning about computational thinking throughout the school day – even in P.E., art and at the library!
The integration of computer science into the elementary classrooms is a commitment to High-Quality Instruction – a priority in our Strategic Plan. We have committed to offering an integrated Computer Science curriculum for each and every student that applies computation thinking, programming, and physical computing to analyze new problems, build predictive models, and create innovative solutions.
