Computer Science Fundamentals
OregonASK Master Trainer, Susan Hamann, attended the Code.org Facilitation Summit in New Orleans in May in order to become a Code.org Computer Science Fundamentals Facilitator. This means that Susan is certified by Code.org to train educators on using the CS Fundamentals curriculum in their classrooms and afterschool programs.
CS Fundamentals is elementary school curriculum that allows even the youngest students to explore the limitless world of computing. Courses blend online, self-guided and self-paced tutorials with “unplugged” classroom activities that require no computer. Each course consists of 20 lessons.
Code.org is a 501(c)3 non-profit dedicated to expanding participation in computer science education by making it available in more schools, and increasing participation by women and underrepresented students of color. The Code.org vision is that every student in every school should have the opportunity to learn computer programming.
