Teachers! Integrate Your Curriculum with Code!
Calling All Teachers @ Ditmas! Here is our Computer Science 4 All Vision!
- Prepare students for a specialised HS or a HS that offers an AP Computer Science course.
- Have every student and teacher receive at least 2 weeks or the equivalent of one Unit of CS in a specified subject. The PD leads will co-teach in the classroom with the teacher as a way to model the lesson.
- In 3 years at least 50% of staff should be comfortable doing at least one unit lesson (in their curriculum) using computer science.
In the 2017-2018 School Year, Ditmas asked for volunteers to do a period of code in their classroom.
We always have high expectations from Ditmas staff, and we were Right!
It was a great success. Over 70% of students and staff accomplished this mission!
What is my first step into integrating my class?
For starters we believe that Scratch is a good starting point for beginners.
Scratch also can fit into any Curriculum.
Scratch for Educators
Your students can use Scratch to code their own interactive stories, animations, and games. In the process, they learn to think creatively, reason systematically, and work collaboratively — essential skills for everyone in today’s society.
