How to Integrate Computational Thinking with “Look Fors”

Article | August 24, 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. They remind administrators of “walk through” documents or forms that are often used during classroom observations to help administrators focus on specific elements of instruction so they can provide rich feedback to educators.

Classroom Culture in an Age of Distance Learning

Article | August 24, 2020

In these times of uncertainty, students look to the adults in their life to provide a sense of comfort and stability even if they seem to be worry-free. While teachers and administrators quickly adapt curriculum and instruction to maintain a high quality of learning as schools around the world close, it’s important for us to remember that beyond academic growth, the classroom is a vital space for students to socialize and feel like they belong. Here are a few principles to keep in mind as we implement distance learning to make sure students still feel the strong sense of community we have worked so hard to build in our physical classrooms. Read on to learn how to put these principles into practice:
