Code.org’s K-5 Courses

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Have you been looking for computer science curriculum for your K-5 students? Code.org has developed three courses to introduce and engage students in computer science education at the elementary school level. During this workshop, you’ll learn about Code.org’s Courses 1, 2 and 3, which are a mix of two kinds of lessons: online and unplugged. In online lessons, students write programs on the computer to achieve certain goals or express their creativity in more open-ended environments. In unplugged lessons, educators lead classroom activities that teach computer science concepts without the use of a computer. In this workshop, you’ll also model activities from the curriculum and discuss equitable practices for K-5 educators while getting a glimpse of how Code.org runs their PD sessions for teachers around the country.
