How to Integrate Computational Thinking with “Look Fors”

Article | March 5, 2020

Digital Promise has been working with districts and educators from across the United States to integrate computational thinking (CT) and computer science (CS) into K-12 classrooms. We’ve developed “Look for” documents to support teachers and administrators in envisioning how this fusion could work in elementary and middle school classrooms. Interviews with teachers, administrators, and other researchers showed us that “Look for” documents offer teachers and administrators a mutual starting point for collaborative visioning, self-assessment, and collective goal-setting for classroom practice.

What if virtual reality is more than a novelty or even a tool? What if it’s a technology with the potential to change, well, everything? When Emory Craig and Maya Georgieva, both experienced educators, first encountered modern VR at the Tribeca Film Festival several years ago, the experience was so revolutionary that it altered the course of their professional lives. The pair went on to establish Digital Bodies, an organization dedicated to researching and consulting on the transformative power of VR, augmented reality and artificial intelligence — collectively referred to as extended reality, or XR — in education and society.
