K-12 Online Teaching Academy: “A Play Then Teach Approach to Computer Science in the Classroom”

Abigail Joseph – Twitter: @drabigailjoseph – MS Director of Learning, Innovation, and Design at the Harker School, led this conversation:
Distance learning requires a flip in the way we engage students with Computer Science material. An alternate approach is to have students explore and question so that they are motivated to learn concepts when it is emergent for them. This webinar will discuss approaches to a play-first methodology for teaching computer science.
Intended audience: Those who teach grades 6-8.  The slides for this webinar are available via Google Drive

The SJSU Lurie College of Education has established this free K-12 Online Teaching Academy to support pre-service teacher candidates and current teachers to strengthen their online teaching skills and adapt to our current circumstances. Learn more about the academy at
