No Fear Coding: K-5 Computational Thinking

Since the 2020 State of Computer Science Education, 31 states have adopted or revised 50 policies, including 21 states that continued funding for computer science education. As more states have adopted more policies, new adoption has slowed in favor of implementing and revising policies that passed in previous years.

Earn as you learn!  This course is approved for CEUs from an accredited university!

Highlights from the past year include:

  • Alabama has adopted all nine policies, joining Arkansas, Idaho, Indiana, Maryland, and Nevada.
  • Several states have adopted seven or eight policies, including Georgia, Iowa, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Utah, Virginia, Washington, West Virginia, and Wyoming.
  • Thirty-two states have put over half of the policies into place. • Montana, Oklahoma, and Tennessee each adopted two new policies since the last report.
  • All 50 states and DC now allow computer science to count towards a graduation requirement. Three states now require all students to take computer science before graduation (Arkansas, South Carolina, and Nevada).
  • More than $65M was allocated by states for computer science education in FY 2022, more than any previous year.

In adding computer science standards and assessing progress towards them, it is essential that our K-5 teachers find a way of integrating these concepts into their core content areas. With instructional minutes being a fixed variable, they simply cannot add another separate subject area into their already instructionally packed day. This course will help inspire the integration of computer science and computational thinking into core content. This intentional integration will deepen the core content learning.

This course is available for an individual educators or for groups.

EDGEucating Vetted Product

We know from personal experience that teachers sometimes feel overwhelmed by the multitude of resources available. It can take a tremendous amount of time to sift through and locate the right edtech products to use in the classroom.

To help teachers make better use of their time and resources we have vetted and curated for you this collection of educational resources to use in your classroom.

EDGEucating only recommends products that we have fully vetted and believe in as part of our endorsed products list. We want this to be a place where you can purchase with confidence!  As educators, we understand the frustration of buying a product that doesn’t live up to its promises.  Our own experiences fueled our desire to start EDGEucating and begin vetting products so that this doesn’t happen to other educators.  
This is a FREE resource for educators!  The vendors pay our fees and there is no pass-through cost for you.
In addition to vetting the products, we have secured agreements with trusted vendors who offer excellent customer service. 

Want to integrate coding and computational thinking but not sure how?  This is the course for you!  This is course is designed to coincide with ISTE’s No Fear Coding: K-5 Computational Thinking book.  Designed by the author, Heidi Williams, this course is sure to help you soar through integrating physical computational thinking skills in your class or school.

This course is approved for 1 CEU!

Course outcomes:

  1. Identify the roadblocks to integrating CS/CT standards and create solutions
  2. Deepen understanding and content knowledge of computational thinking
  3. Find ways to integrate coding into core content
  4. Exploring physical computing devices (hands-on approach)
  5. Understanding and exploring block-based coding
  6. Identifying entry points for a deeper understanding of core content through computer science
