Let WeTeach_CS Help You Integrate Computational Thinking

Whether you teach CS or not, your students will benefit from developing computational thinking skills. Because, while many people think computational thinking is just for computer science, we have found it must be integrated into all subjects as it is one of the top requested skills from employers.  It is a thinking process that can be implemented from K-12 and mirrors many of the things we are already doing within content. During this workshop, participants will discover what computational thinking is, how to integrate it and the value of adding it to their daily instruction to improve student engagement. Computational thinking is not just for the GT, but all sub-pops will benefit.
