Ace 2015: Teaching Computational Thinking in K-6: The CSER Digital Technologies MOOC
A paper about CSER’s work with the Digital Technologies MOOC has been accepted for presentation and publication in the Australasian Computing Education Conference (ACE) next year.
The paper explores how Computational Thinking and Computing topics were introduced to teachers through examples of learning activities as well as those developed by the participants. We anticipate this paper will provide a useful model of online teacher professional development for those also facing the introduction of new computing curriculum.
