CS in the Wild

CS in the Wild is our "home base" for the CS for All Teachers Community! We invite you to share articles, videos, quotations, links, and discussions about computer science topics that do not align directly with any particular ECS/CSP curricular element. We hope all members of the CS for All Teachers Community will become active participants in this virtual space. Make the most of this opportunity to connect and collaborate!

Will we be seeing you in Phoenix at the CSTA conference?

Are you attending next week's CSTA conference? Make sure to stop by the CS For All Teachers booth to meet the organizers of our virtual community. Also, the CS For All Teachers Ambassadors will be in attendance and they would love to chat with you!

Slow Twitter Chat: Closing the Gender Gap #CSforAllTeachers

How can we ensure that our female students see computer science as a relevant and engaging field? How do we overcome bias in the media and encourage our female students to persist through challenge? Join us using #CSforAllTeachers on Twitter to explore these questions as we work to close the gender gap in computer science throughout the week of June 10th, 2019. This will be a "slow" Twitter chat, so we will ask a question each day throughout this week.  

End of School Year in the CS Classroom

As the school year comes to an end, and students begin to get wiggly and anxious, what is your favorite activity? Do you have a lovely End of Year activity that helps students reflect on CS concepts or Computational Thinking that they have learned through the year?

Unplugged CS Activities

I am not sure how your campus or state handles testing, but on my campus, we have internet sanctions the week of testing to preserve all bandwidth for any student online testing. For half the week, we will have regular class rotations but not computers!

Boston Scratch Educator Meetup

Join local K–12 educators at a ScratchEd Meetup to play, learn, and connect around teaching with Scratch. Scratch is a free online programming tool through which students can creatively explore computer science concepts by creating interactive media (like stories, games, animations, and simulations) and sharing those creations with others online. The Scratch Online Community is used by millions of young people all around the world. Join us for food, fun, and community. No coding experience necessary! Free parking in the rear of the building.   RSVP: https://www.meetup.com/ScratchEd-Boston/events/254981484/
