'Developing a Model of Teacher Learning to Support Computationally Rich Communications in Science Classrooms' is made possible through funding from the James S. McDonnell Foundation. The SchoolWide Labs team continues its research on integrating Computational Thinking (CT) into middle school science classrooms through their generous support.
This new funding is enabling the CU research team to continue its partnership with Denver Public Schools -- including using curricular materials developed by the team in more schools throughout the district, collecting data on how teachers learn to support computationally rich discourse in their classrooms, and expanding pedagogical theories about supporting integration of CT in Science and STEM classrooms.
In addition, through this project the team continues to partner with researchers at Utah State University to work with a cohort of teachers from Cache County, Utah in order to field test and study how CT integrated learning is affected by various school and district contexts.
