In Computational Thinking for Educators, Google’s newly launched freeonline course, teachers will learn what computational thinking (CT) is and how it can be integrated into a variety of subject areas. Participants will learn at their own pace by exploring examples of CT in a variety of subject areas, experimenting with examples of CT-integrated activities, and creating a plan to incorporate CT into their classroom.
The New York Hall of Science (NYSCI) pioneered Design–Make–Play, a novel approach to learning and engagement, drawing on deeper learning research and supporting the creation of learning experiences that develop critical thinking, knowledge integration, innovation, and creativity skills.
The International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) has developed a set of guidelines to help educators integrate computational thinking across the curriculum. The effort is part of an overall goal of enhancing science, technology, engineering, and math instruction.
