Computational-thinking skills include seeing patterns, creating rules or algorithms, making abstractions, and decomposing a mathematical structure into component parts. These skills are closely tied to many applications of mathematics as well as to the Standards for Mathematical Practice. Whether during in-person instruction or remote learning, teachers and students must continue to develop the mathematical practices; computational thinking provides an engaging context for this work. Students will explore engaging mathematical problems, develop the practices, and build foundation skills for careers which require computational thinking.

In this first edWebinar of a two-part series, Dr. Sara Delano Moore, Director of Professional Learning at ORIGO Education, shares mathematical tasks which develop computational thinking. The session explores contexts in which computational thinking is likely to occur and highlight career pathways where students might use these skills. The session considers both face-to-face and virtual settings for instruction. Watch Sara to explore the opportunities of computational thinking.

This recorded edWebinar will be of interest to elementary-level teachers and school leaders.
