This presentation will provide an overview of the NSF-funded research on integrated K-8 computer science (CS) instruction for academically diverse learners, including those with disabilities.
The organizers of EdCampCU - Katrina Kennett, Todd Lash, and Alex Valencic - will talk briefly about EdCampCU’s history of bringing together community members around conversations about education, preview a clip from Most Likely to Succeed, a documentary film we will host a free community screening of, and have a conversation to help everyone look forward to the Fall EdCampCU at the Pygmalion Festival!
On January 30th, the third EdCampCU took place at the College of Education. Attended by participants from around the Champaign Urbana area (and as far as Arthur!), we brought together in-service teachers, pre-service teachers, administration, school board members, parents, community members, Fab Lab educators, and others.
Kenwood Kennovation: An elementary school community promoting collaboration, creativity, computational thinking, and computer science

With strong partnerships, and a dedicated staff, they are re-envisioning educational experiences for students and families. Explore how educators are engaging students, teachers, and the community using code.org, computational thinking lesson planning, unplugged activities, the collaborative framework, Etoys & Scratch, and Community Tech Time.
