Join NYSCATE Corporate Council members CoderZ for this engaging hour-long webinar on how to utilize CS standards across multi-disciplines.

While the benefits of computing education are widely recognized, many schools are faced with tough choices when deciding where in the school day this essential subject can fit. This session will challenge the notion that allocating classroom minutes is a zero-sum game. In fact, well-designed computing curricula address computer science standards while reinforcing content in key subjects such as math, science, and ELA.

This session will go deep into the CSTA standards and investigate alignment with other commonly used standards frameworks. Participants will make connections between district goals for students and engaging, standards-aligned computing projects and activities. They will leave with concrete examples of how they can bring computing education to their students while allowing them to approach traditional academic disciplines in fresh ways that deepen student learning.
