If you've reached this page you are interested in learning more about what students do in "21st Century Solutions" class, or as we call it TCS. Thanks for your interest!
The focus for my class is Computing Education with an emphasis on Computer Science. A comprehensive computing education includes:
computer literacy (how to use specific software and hardware),
educational technology (applying the software and hardware use to learning about, or expressing knowledge of other subjects),
digital citizenship (using computers safely, respectfully and responsibly), and
computer science (learning how computers think, how humans and computers interact, and how to program computers, a.k.a. coding )
This year I will spend the first quarter focused on computer literacy and digital citizenship, and then move on to focus on computer science, while educational technology in infused in all of our activities. Check out the two videos below that will help you understand why computer science education is so important today!
