Global Education Conference 2012

Computational Thinking - Global Education Conference:

Last week I presented my "Because the Cat Goes Left" webinar for the world's largest free educational conference:http://www.globaleducationconference.com/ 

Incorporating computational thinking and computer programming into our K-8 curriculum must be a priority! I heard loud and clear from the participants in the audience that we need to start providing more training for our K-8 teachers in this area, so that they can incorporate these skills within their classrooms and within their existing curriculum. 

I am a firm believer that these skills do NOT have to be a separate class for our children. It needs to become a way of thinking!

If you would like to see ways in which you can incorporate into your teaching, along with concrete examples and rubrics, feel free to view the recording of the webinar.
