New Code.org K-5 Program Workshops

Curriculum

Coming summer 2014 - Code.org will release three bands of computer science for the elementary school level:

  • Course 1: for early-readers, ages 4-6
  • Course 2: for beginners, ages 6+
  • Course 3: for ages 6+

These course experiences blend online, self-guided and self-paced tutorials with "unplugged" activities - lessons that teach computing concepts without a computer. Each level consists of about 20 lessons that may be implemented as one contiguous unit or one lesson a week for a semester. Each lesson may be implemented within a standard 30-45 minute period.

The courses have been designed for students of all ages and they reinforce math, science, and english education standards for elementary school students.

Elementary school teachers will have the opportunity to attend one-day workshops that will provide training and support for teaching our K-5 curriculum. They are open to both general classroom teachers and content-area teachers (librarians, tech-ed teachers, etc).

These workshops will be run by Code.org's K-5 Affiliates nationwide. Approximately 100 affiliates will attend a summit this summer to prepare for local workshops as part of a 2014-2015 pilot program.
