Digital literacy and computer science are rapidly entering the realm of foundational knowledge for all K–12 students. Recognizing the importance of these competencies, Massachusetts is among the first states in the country to have released Digital Literacy and Computer Science (DLCS) standards. In the elementary grades, educators will find it particularly challenging to add new disciplinary learning to curricular responsibilities that are already full to overflowing. Come to learn about a collaborative project among DESE, EDC, and Massachusetts school districts that is addressing this challenge by integrating computational thinking (one of the strands of the DLCS standards) into science and math curriculum. Participants will learn about computational thinking, engage in computational thinking themselves, and examine science lessons from current drafts of lessons being developed through the project. They will also have an opportunity to explore and discuss the new DLCS standards.
