YOU MUST BE A TEACHER FOR SYCAMORE LOCAL SCHOOLS TO PARTICIPATE
Code.Orgs TeacherCon & Ohio Batelle's Teacher Cohort Curriculum Training on Computer Science Discoveries; (CS Discoveries) is an introductory computer science course that empowers students to create authentic artifacts and engage with computer science as a medium for creativity, communication, problem solving, and fun.
Participant will be able to successfully fill the Role of the CS Discoveries Course Teacher goals of the instructor will act as the lead learner. As the lead learner, the role of the teacher shifts from being the source of knowledge to being a leader in seeking knowledge. The lead learner’s mantra is: “I may not know the answer, but I know that together we can figure it out.” A very practical residue of this is that we never ask a teacher to lecture or offer the first explanation of a CS concept. We want the class activity to do the work of exposing the concept to students, allowing the teacher to shape meaning from what the students have experienced. We also expect teachers to act as the curator of materials. Finally, we include an abundance of materials and teaching strategies in our curricula - too many to use at once - with the expectation that teachers have the professional expertise to determine how to best conduct an engaging and relevant class for their own students.
