Unpacking the New Illinois Computer Science Standards

| Free

Join us for this workshop, where we’ll open up the new K-12 Computer Science learning standards and break them down into digestible and actionable segments. Along the way, we’ll explore programs you can use to integrate these standards into the curriculum as well as the conceptual framework underpinning these standards’ intent and purpose. You’ll walk away with a solid understanding of how to approach these standards, their progression across grade levels, and the tools you’ll need to bring them to life for your students.
