NSF Awards: 1837380

2019 (see original presentation & discussion)

Grades K-6

This video will describe the need to prepare elementary grade teachers to integrate computer science into math, science and literacy, to make computer science available and accessible to all students, particularly students with disabilities. We will describe our Research Practitioner Partnership in which we are collaboratively developing and refining an effective model of professional development for elementary grade teachers.  We will describe our exploration of the challenges faced by teachers in inclusive classrooms when integrating CS into instruction for students with diverse needs, including those with high-incidence disabilities. We will also address how we are identifying effective support methods and adaptations for teaching CS to K-5 students with high- incidence disabilities by incorporating the principles of Universal Design for Learning. We describe how we ultimately hope to identify a developmentally appropriate progression for integrating computer science into elementary grade math, science, and literacy instruction, particularly for students with disabilities. Finally, we will discuss the potential impact of our project and how we will measure progress toward our intended outcomes.
