Workshop Spotlight | November 18, 2019
Computer science teachers often face a false dichotomy between code and design. Strictly teaching design can disengage students who have an appreciation for algorithmic thinking, while focusing only on scripting can alienate more visual students. This past spring, MƒA teachers explored methods aimed to bridge the gap between code and design and unlock an innovative world of computer science for their students through one of our courses.
Both Marisa and Maggie know the power of the growing field of computer science. However, the resources teachers need to advance in this field are not always accessible. Marisa added, “There is currently no certification process in New York State for computer science teaching, and many teachers have to find their own ways to learn. My favorite place to turn to for computer science learning is always MƒA.”
