The iCS Project: Integrated Computer Science in Elementary Curricula

NSF Awards: 1433327

2017 (see original presentation & discussion)

Grades K-6

We presented our iCS (Integrated Computer Science) Project (NSF iTest) in the 2016 NSF video showcase from the perspective of the teachers. During this year's showcase, we would like to "showcase" how the students are experiencing this project. This school year, 2016-17, will be the third year some students have participated in classroom projects that integrate content areas and computer science through project-based learning (PBL). In addition, outside of our project, the project site school has adopted PBL across all grades (not just the 3rd, 4th, and 5th grades involved in the iCS Project). Therefore, with some feedback from the teachers and/or administration (on-camera), we would like to explore how the students are experiencing this different approach to content. Hearing from the students will be a powerful perspective and interesting conversation/chat starter as we share the project's work in this important space.
