On October 6, 2022, Learning.com sponsored the EdWeek webinar, “Computer Science Education Movement Gathers Momentum – How Should Schools React.” Computer science has been a topic near and dear to what we do at Learning.com for over 20 years – preparing students for success in a digital world. With over 40 states and counting having adopted state computer science standards, this field of study is increasingly prevalent in K-12 education.

In the webinar, now available on-demand, EdWeek Assistant Editor Alyson Klein moderated a panel of experts in the field of K-12 computer science education. Representing Chicago Public Schools, Pritzker Tech Talent Labs Discovery Partners Institute, Code.org and Louden County Public Schools, the panelists shared their insights on this critical topic. All agreed:

  • Start early: Introducing computer science lessons at the elementary school level sets students up for success in middle and high school.
  • Make it widely available: Access is key to making computer science coursework accessible to all students, not just a select few.

To dive into these insights and more, watch the full webinar on-demand.
