Creating a District k-12 Computer Science Vision
This chapter will help you to:
- Create a computer science vision for your district
- Generate computer science goals
- Design an action plan for implementation
Do you have a computer science vision or framework for your school district?
As districts start to implement the Michigan computer science standards, they might struggle with questions such as where to start or who should be involved. Developing a K-12 computer science vision for your district will provide purpose and pathways to students’ learning. By applying computer science as a tool for learning and expression in a variety of disciplines and interests, districts will prepare students to actively participate in a world that is increasingly influenced by technology.
A district vision for computer science also addresses issues of urgency and equity regarding computer science opportunities. By incorporating computer science education, schools provide strong computer science skills that equip students to navigate new and emerging innovations. Additionally, computer science education provides equitable access to computer science opportunities regardless of where students live in Michigan, or the demographics of the schools they attend.
At the end of this chapter, your district will have a computer science vision, computer science related goals, and an action plan for moving forward.
