Register today! Understanding the K12 Computer Science Framework
Monday Sept 18, 3:30-4:30 pm
Arizona is preparing to start the development of K12 Computer Science (CS) Standards. The K12 Computer Science Framework sets the vision and critical content that states should consider when developing CS Standards, including core concepts and practices. This webinar will be presented by Pat Yongpradit, Chief Academic Officer at Code.org and one of the contributors to the development of the K12 CS Framework.
The K-12 Computer Science Framework identifies the big ideas of computer science through core concepts (major content areas in the field of computer science) and core practices (behaviors that computationally literate students use to fully engage with the core concepts of computer science). Learning progressions describe how students’ conceptual understanding and practice of computer science grow more sophisticated over time. The concepts and practices are designed to be integrated to provide authentic, meaningful experiences for students engaging in computer science.

The U.S. Department of Education (USDOE) issued a seven-page memo detailing potential ways to use federal formula grant funds to support STEM education. The document references funds available through the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), and the Carl D. Perkins Career and Technical Education Act of 2006 (Perkins).
