Computer Science builds creative thinking and collaboration skills.
We proved it, now YOU can measure it.
A new and proven way to foster and assess Creative Thinking and Collaboration Skills in Computer Science Curriculum. Does your curriculum have what it takes?
Harvard University PhD, Yigal Rosen, partnered with industry leaders in coding curriculum, Elizabeth Bacon, and Hana Zimmerman-Karl, to determine how growth in creative thinking and collaboration could be measured. The outcome? This whitepaper.
Through emerging computer science curriculum, students practice a wide range of the NGSS-aligned engineering principles, key concepts in computer science found in the CSTA standards, and core concepts in math and science - all while engaging in hands-on learning that fosters creative thinking and collaboration skills.
This white paper provides concrete definitions for creativity and collaboration, clear rubrics for assessing and measuring the development of these skills, and project examples from the CoderZ curriculum for the explicit integration of them in curriculum.
Bring the most recent research on the role and importance of creative thinking and collaboration skills development in STEM education into your own classroom, and break down identity barriers before they begin. So students can see that anyone is capable of succeeding in STEM.
