K-12 Computer Science Framework

I wanted to share with you that a national Computer Science Framework has been adopted! The Framework took months to complete and has input from our district and others across the nation. (Shout out to those who helped in the review process)
This framework is intended to help educators and state leaders as they develop Computer Science curriculums. As you may know, North Carolina has not had a clear pathway for teaching Computer Science in K-12 so this could be the guiding force that helps them to reinstate this in our state. In Johnston County, we have been working with K-5 teachers to expose students to computer science through code.org and other resources like the Google CS First. So I am really excited to have a clearly defined framework of the skills that will help our students be successful beyond the classroom in careers in computer science. Check it out here: https://k12cs.org/




If you (or a teacher you know) are interested in learning more join us next Saturday, November 5 for a Code.org one day workshop! Sign up in MyLearningPlan or using this link!  You will get credit for attending and tons of materials and SWAG!
