Understanding the K12 Computer Science Framework

This project was initially delivered as a synchronous webinar to provide an overview of the K12 Computer Science Framework and help educators understand why K-12 computer science (CS) education is important; the vision, development, and structure of the K12 CS Framework; and how the K12 CS Framework can be used to guide and inform CS Standards development. The webinar was designed in PowerPoint and delivered through WebEx.

To expand the reach and availability, the webinar was converted to an asynchronous online course developed in Adobe Presenter and hosted on BlackBoard LMS. The course included narrated slides, questions to check for understanding following each of the 4 main sections, and a SCORM scored final quiz. This allowed educators to assess their understanding of the content and earn continuing education units upon completion that could be applied towards re-certification requirements.
