Explore Computer Science!
As educators, it can be very challenging to find time in our already packed daily schedules to plan for a stand alone Computer Science lesson. What we can do is shift our thinking so that we see Computer Science as an opportunity to integrate new ideas and skills into our existing content area lesson plans on an ongoing basis.
Join our regional educational technology and Computer Science coordinator, Mike Batali, in learning how you can integrate Computer Science into your lessons to engage students!
