I am a computer science and social studies teacher in Queens, NY. My certification is in 7-12 social studies education. I love to teach computer science as it opens up the creative minds our students have and it allows them to explore the nuances of many of the devices that are all around us. Plus, coding is fun and virtually limitless!
Collaboration is a crucial aspect of real-world environments (related to computer science, or not) and so it's important for students to learn how to effectively work with others (in addition to independent development). The purpose of this course is to provide educators with pedagogical and practical strategies for implementing collaboration in pre-programming, during and post-programming activities within computer science classes.
