Computer Science Classes

Introduction

Hello, my name is Mrs. Mattina and this year I will be teaching Computer Science to 6th grade students. I am the technology integration coach at the Davies school and I am passionate about Computer Science education. I believe all students should learn the art and science of computers.

Students will be using a variety of tools to learn the fundamentals about Computer Science. They will use 21st century skills such as creativity, communication, collaboration, critical thinking, and problem solving skills as well as, logical and computational thinking skills to write, debug, test, and run programs. They will use a variety of block base coding editors to write algorithms, and other hands-on gadgets to learn coding. Additionally, they will use unplugged activities such as Breakouts to build relationships and community.

Please scroll through the course syllabus, and classroom policies for more information about my class. Students will be using Google Classroom, and Flipgrid along with their GSFE account to complete classroom assignments.
