K-5: Computer Science Plugged and Unplugged:
Computers, Computers everywhere – now what do we do with them? Overwhelmingly, there is a push to get students on computers but a lot of computer science can be taught without a computer. These "unplugged" techniques can be especially effective with younger children and engage students who do not learn typically, who may have language challenges or who may not like computers or think computers are not for them. They can help those students engage in individual and group activities, play games and participate in activities that help their social and emotional learning – all while addressing the NJ Learning Standards! This session, dedicated towards K-5 teachers but open to everyone, will look at Computer Science activities that are “unplugged” and then connect them to the “plugged” concepts. No programming or computer science experience necessary.
All workshops are led by MSU faculty in computer science and education.
2-hours of professional development credit will be awarded for each workshop attended.
MSU HUB Grant is funded by the Computer Science for All: Expanding Professional Learning (HUB Grant) (22E00173)
***Registration is still open for the Teacher CS Standards Hack-a-thon on Saturday, January 21st from 9a-1p. Hack-a-thon registration
