CS-STEM-IC (Grades 1–6): Computer Science STEM Integration and Collaboration

NSF Awards: 1543136

2017 (see original presentation & discussion)

Grades K-6

In this video, researchers and subject matter experts from Education Development Center (EDC), along with elementary teachers from the state of Massachusetts, explore the optimal intersections of Computational Thinking (CT) with disciplinary practices in elementary science and mathematics lessons. The group will review the teachers’ delivery of an integrated module (I-Mod) developed as part of a project funded by NSF under the STEM+C program.

Throughout the country, there are many efforts to make both computer science (the science that deals with the theory and methods of processing information in computers) and digital literacy (the ability to use digital technology, communication tools, or networks to locate, evaluate, use, and create information) a more important part of all students’ K–12 learning experience. Through this work, EDC, along with the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (MA DESE), has begun to identify promising elementary school mathematics and science topics for integrating with CT, the challenges to teachers of implementing I-Mods with fidelity to both the CT and math/science content, the resources needed at the state level to support teachers’ efforts to address new Digital literacy and Computer Science Standards (DL/CS), and the impact of the I-Mods on elementary students’ CT and teachers understanding of and sense of readiness to teach CT.
