I can apply what we learned about Computational Thinking to my own teaching and classroom by being aware of these skills and slowly introducing these skills to our students through activities, games, and interactive assignments.
I read this article about Computational Thinking and how it can benefit students of all ages both inside and outside of the classroom.
Awesome Jimmy! Let's grab some coffee and you cant tell me more about it!
I learned... 1. That CT is a way for students to solve problems/design systems/how to understand human behavior 2. CT is important because the application of computer technology to every field of study has changed the way work is done today; it is necessary to acquire these skills in todays world. 3. It can be introduced in the classroom by building CT skills within the curriculum of all their lesson plans throughout different grade levels and content areas.
What did you learn in the article?
While reading I questioned... 1. Will this be a national decision to enforce computational thinking? What if a student transfers schools and has never been introduced to computational thinking, will they fall behind? 2. How does computational thinking comprehension to a general classroom discussions that are currently taking place? How are they similar, how are they different?
What question did you have while reading the article?
Now that you have gained all this information. How are you going to apply it in your classroom?
Thats great! Maybe you can share some of your new lesson plans with me! I would love to apply those skills within my classroom.
Absolutely Callie! I'd be more than happy to help.
