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.
In addition to communicating with humans and machines, tomorrow's jobs will require employees to collaborate with their fellow co-workers, as well as the machines that will be working side by side with our employees. By offering high tech learning environments, we will ensure our students have the skills and comfort level to collaborate with both humans and robotics in the workplace.
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 Pack, created by the New York Hall of Science, is an open virtual-world game based around two timely STEM subjects—environmental awareness and computationalthinking. The game is set in a future world where healthy ecosystems have faltered and resources are scarce.
