District Recognized for Providing Rigorous and Engaging Curriculum for All Students Welcomes Equity-driven, Computer Science Learning in K-5
In this interview with Sofía De Jesús, we discuss Sofía’s book (Applied Computational Thinking with Python: Design algorithmic solutions for complex and challenging real-world problems), the importance of bringing your full self into the classroom, designing for equity and inclusion, working with individuals one-on-one rather than teaching to group averages, problematizing grades in education, collaborating with educators, and much more.
In this #CSK8 episode, Jared O'Leary unpacks Israel, Lash, Bergeron, and Ray’s publication titled “Planning K-8 computer science through the UDL framework,” which discusses the potential for using Universal Design for Learning (UDL) in CS classes.
In this very short episode Jared O'Leary asks for recommendations in three areas: 1) guests to interview, 2) topics and publications to unpack, and 3) recommending the podcast to other CS educators.
Every student should have access to computer science (CS) education in this technology-filled world. For BootUp PD, closing the equity gaps in CS is priority number one. Thanks to Contentful, BootUp has been able to scale its website and continue to create a space where teachers can obtain resources for their classrooms.
