Assessing Computational Thinking

Join Science World educators and teachers across B.C. for weekly sessions about STEAM learning and teaching.

About this Event

STEAM: science, technology, engineering, art & design, and math

In these weekly sessions we'll share resources, ideas, and find answers to questions.

This week: Assessing Computational Thinking

The Applied Design, Skills, and Technologies (ADST) curriculum from K to 9 is built on the model of integrating the applied-design process into other subject areas. This workshop will allow teachers to explore cross-curricular lessons involving coding and computational thinking to demonstrate how this problem-solving strategy can be applied in subjects such as language arts, physical education, science, and math. Discussions and hands-on activities will allow participants to leave this session with a better understanding of how to create meaningful interdisciplinary lessons, assess curriculum, and self-assess their core competencies.

This session is intended as a professional development opportunity for educators. This session will be held on Zoom. Meeting details will be emailed 2 hours prior to the event.

This program is a part of Tech-Up, Science World's initiative to enhance existing programs to include coding and computational thinking.
