A brisk chill has hit the air and everyone wriggles in their seats with excitement. The most wonderful time of year has arrived…and I’m not talking about the holidays!
Every year, the second week of December is set aside to celebrate Computer Science Education Week – also known as CSEd Week. It’s a time when CS educators offer up their favorite exercises to help spread the idea that computer science is a valuable core skill that is neither as difficult to teach nor to learn as some might think.
One of the benefits to experimenting with code and CS during CSEd Week is the amazing number of experiences that teachers have to choose from. Unfortunately, that’s also one of the drawbacks.
With so many fantastic introductory experiences, how does one decide what to use with their class? How can you tell which exercises are worthwhile and which will fall flat? Keep reading for tips on choosing the best experience for your classroom.
