Computer Science & Digital Fluency in the Science Class
In this course we will explore applications of the New York State Computer Science and Digital Fluency Standards (NYSCSDF) as they reinforce and support New York State Science Learning Standards (NYSSLS), a series of performance expectations that define what students should understand and be able to do as a result of their study of science. Many applications of the standards may be incorporated as habits of practice in the classroom, becoming a seamless component of instructional activities, while others will add depth and important connections to the disciplinary core ideas, cross cutting concepts, and science and engineering practices of the New York State Science Learning Standards (NYSSLS). By the end of this course, you will create a project or lesson plan that blends standards from both NYSSLS and NYSCSDF.
This course is worth 3 CTLE Hours
1. To learn to apply the New York State Computer Science & Digital Fluency Standards (NYSCSDF) in science to support student learning as guided by the New York State Science Learning Standards (NYSSLS).
2. To build lessons and project activities that apply the NYSCSDF to enhance student learning in the science classroom.
