Computer Science: Elementary Resources

Elementary Computer Science SPRING Teacher Institute

In this series of trainings, elementary educators will deconstruct the Mississippi College-and Career-Readiness Standards for Computer Science to better understand the skills that need to be taught at each grade level. Participants will also examine cross-curricular connections between computer science and other content areas, explore ways to integrate computer science instruction, and practice coding skills.  

Elementary teachers, assistant teachers, counselors, and librarians are encouraged to register

Trainings will be held on the following dates:

  • Session 1 – Webinar: Exploring the Standards
    January 31, 3:30 – 5:00 p.m., plus some asynchronous work to be completed before the next session

    February 16, 3:30 – 4:30 p.m., plus completion of Code.org course work before the next session
  • Session 3 – In-person: Coding with Robots and Making Content Area Connections
    Week of February 27 (exact locations and dates TBD), 1:30 – 4:30 p.m.
  • Session 4 – Webinar: Creating Computer Science Champions
    April 25; 3:30 – 4:30 p.m.

It is recommended that participants attend ALL sessions. Participants that attend all webinars and the in-person session are eligible to receive 1.1 CEUs.
