Introduction to Computational Thinking for Every Educator

In the digital age, computational thinking (CT) is an essential skill for students and educators alike.

This systematic approach to solving problems is at the foundation of not just computer science, but many other subject areas – and careers – as well.

Developed with support from Google, this course unpacks how CT can be integrated throughout subject areas and grade levels.

Through this course, you’ll increase your awareness of CT, experiment with CT-integrated activities for the subject areas you teach, and create a plan to incorporate CT into your curricula.

This is a 15-hour, self-paced course with ongoing instructor support.
