Important Session Information:


The Deep Dive into Code.org CS Fundamentals is designed for elementary educators who have started teaching CS Fundamentals but want to more deeply understand Code.org’s approach to teaching CS and need strategies to fully implement the curriculum. Developed with Code.org’s professional learning values in mind, the Deep Dive workshop provides teachers with a hands-on learning experience with other like-minded teachers. Teachers are given the space to work through the individual challenges in carefully crafted sessions led by experienced facilitators,

The CS Fundamentals Intro workshop is not a prerequisite for the Deep Dive, but participants should have started teaching CS Fundamentals before attending.
