Week #14 and Computational Thinking
Last session, we focused on Ancient Greece. And now for something completely different...Coding and Robotics! Why? Because breadth is important to us. Introducing new topics stokes the flames of our learners' curiosity about the wondrous world we live in.
When learners sharpen their coding skills, they are also sharpening their computational thinking skills—training their brains to pay attention to the way big problems can be broken down into small pieces.
This session's Writer's Workshop is focused on technical writing (writing instructions). Like coding, instructions must be clear. Unlike coding, technical writing can be more engaging and nuanced for the human audience (ever thought of how your car manual could be improved?).
Next, we'll use our theme to dive deeper into the topic of digital citizenship.
Have a great week,
Head of School
