Pre-K to 8 Computer Science

The purpose of the Pre-K to Grade 8 Computer Science Education is to expand partnerships and collaboration opportunities for teachers and administrators in the curriculum areas of Computer Science. Our SIG will provides computer science grade level teacher support and ideas for the classroom for topics such as computational thinking, computer systems, block programming, physical computing using robotics, Makey-Makey, and Micro:Bits. We will focus on grade level differentiation to maximize student engagement while integrating computer science in all core subject areas.

About MassCUE Special Interest Groups (SIGs)

MassCUE Special Interest Groups (SIGs) represent a growing network of connected educators, serving every grade level and subject area. Our objective is to transform education by sharing, collaborating and providing professional growth opportunities that affect best practices.

We encourage new SIGs to consider focusing on using 21st Century tools to promote critical thinking and globalization. No matter the type of SIG, the focus should be to develop pedagogy that integrates technology, improving teaching and learning. MassCUE SIGs provide the opportunity for educators to achieve this goal throughout our organization and state.
