Computational thinking (CT) is a higher-order problem-solving and cross-curricular skill. As CT is understandable to both machines and humans, in this session Technology and Engineering educators will learn to draw on familiar concepts that connect their previous learning to foundational computer science (CS) practices that involve designing solutions that leverage the power of computing. Join this webinar with educational coach Jorge Valenzuela. Jorge will share authentic examples (both in EbD and other curricula), best practices, and resources for helping any educator get started with mastering CT.
