Creative Computing Summer Institute
In Creative Computing, we will explore how to support the development of computational literacy in K–12 learners by focusing on key problems of practice: How do we connect computational literacy with required curriculum? How do we balance learner freedom and learner support? How do we assess learning, particularly learning that involves creative artifacts? How do we cultivate our own expertise as educators with creative computing?
