A Quick Look at the K–12 Computer Science Framework

I recently came across the K–12 Computer Science Framework, a document created in the United States by the Association for Computing Machinery, code.org, the Computer Science Teachers Association, the Cyber Innovation Center and the National Math + Science Initiative.

The 297 page document is impressive in both its breadth and depth. I would recommend that anyone involved in Computer Science Education take a look (I include all those involved in coding, computer programming, computational thinking and related initiatives within this group).

Below are a series of quotes and figures from the document. These are simply a few of the interesting talking/research points that have been included. The Framework discusses each of these ideas in depth.

    Thinking and wondering about the Venn diagram with play and social and emotional learning surrounding subject learning. Much to explore , teachers with students, as computer science moves into elementary schools and primary/junior classrooms .
