Happy Computer Science Education Week! Happy indeed! My book, Code Breaker, was released yesterday. Here is the description from Amazon:
“Crack the code for your students’ success!
Future-ready students need to be creative. They need to know how to communicate their ideas and how to collaborate as problem solvers. To master these and other twenty-first-century requirements, they will need to be critical thinkers.
- Use computational thinking and coding across all subjects and grade levels
- Encourage students to let their skills and passions shine
- Teach learners to take risks so they can grow from failure and feedback
- Make assessment meaningful–and fun–for you and your students
You don’t have to be a “computer geek” to empower your students with these essential skills. Code Breaker equips you to use computational thinking and coding in your classroom – regardless of your computer skill level – to increase creativity, remix assessment, and develop a class of coder ninjas!”
