Tackling Illinois’ new computer science and computer literacy standards may feel like a daunting task. But with the right planning and informed expectations, your district can build a robust K-8 CS program centered on engagement, inquiry, and standards-based learning. It all starts with a thorough understanding of our state’s newest learning standards.

Join us as we break down each standard into easy-to-understand chunks, including the computational skills and competencies addressed in the K-2, 3-5, and 6-8 standard sets. We’ll also highlight several best practices your district can use today to start incorporating CS concepts into any classroom or content area.
