Storyboard Text

  • My Take On "Toward an Emergent Theory of Broadening Participation in Computer Science Education" 
  • Both of these questions are important to me because I want to make sure all the students in my class have equal opportunitys to succeed, and keeping students motivated and making things easier for them are two parts of that.
  • By: Katie Korosec
  • Guided discovery, where teachers "set more general goals for building the same game" but still allow freedom for student creativity and room for students to personalize their work is a good way to go about teaching computer science.
  • Just teaching the skills necessary for computer science without challenges and ways to keep students engaged becomes irrelevant and loses the attention of students.
  • Part 1: Computational Thinking
  • "Online tutorials in a lockstep fashion with all students expected to proceed together one step at a time" result in loss of engagement, motivation, and creativity in students.
  • Part 2: Questions
  • What are some ways we can motivate students who are not seeming to enjoy any parts of computer science? 
  • When being surveyed after the course one student said "I use to think computers were so easy, but not no more [sic]." What can we do to make computer science easier for students who feel this way?
  • Part 3: My Future Classoom
  • One way to include computer science in my future classroom will be incorporating it into other subject areas.
  • Use StoryboardThat to create a summary of the book we just finished reading.
