Description

This stack is designed to showcase the different ways that educators can use plugged and unplugged strategies to support the development of computational thinking.

What You'll Demonstrate

You will demonstrate the ability to plan and implement instruction that supports the development of computational thinking in both plugged and unplugged learning environments.

Who Should Apply

  • PK12 teachers
  • Instructional coaches
  • Education support professionals

Micro-credentials


Planning Computational Thinking: PLUGGED

The educator designs a lesson or unit in which computational thinking skills (wearable programming devices, etc.) are integrated into their own instructional context using computer-based technologies or other devices.

Implementing Computational Thinking: PLUGGED

The educator provides evidence of instruction in which learning technologies (maker kits, educational games or robots, etc.) were successfully used to promote computational thinking skills into their own instructional context.

Planning Computational Thinking: UNPLUGGED

The educator designs a lesson that incorporates learning activities that do not require technology to promote one or more computational thinking skills (problem decomposition, pattern recognition, abstraction, and creating algorithms).

Implementing Computational Thinking: UNPLUGGED

The educator provides evidence of instruction that incorporates learning activities that do not require technology to promote one or more computational thinking skills (problem decomposition, pattern recognition, abstraction, creating algorithms).
