|Subject area:||STEM/STEAM, Computer science|
|ISTE Standards:||For Students:
Participants will be exposed to the vocabulary of Computational Thinking.
Participants will understand the importance of Computational Thinking to the field of Computer Science.
Participants will see that many of the principles of Computational Thinking are things they are already doing in the classroom.
Participants will be exposed to curricular integrations of Computational Thinking.
Participants will have access to resources that can further their development of Computational Thinking integration.
We will share our poster that breaks down each computational thinking (CT) component and connect it with the conference experience to make the concepts palatable. We will share resources that we have collected over the years to showcase classroom activities to impact CT and have examples set out on the table. Through conversations, we hope to engage attendees in conversations to discuss the importance of computational thinking and how we can impact future computer scientists.
