2% That’s the estimate of how many high school students in all of California took a Computer Science class in 2015. And yet, computers and data are everywhere. Just consider a typical 24 hours in your life … how many different computer devices do you use? We all live in multiple digital worlds that are changing rapidly with new apps, devices, and data analyses offering a constant stream of innovations and technology integrations for our lives. As it's an integral part of our lives, we’re working towards computer science for all - making it possible for every student, every future member of society, to understand computing and technology. To do so, we need teachers. Teachers prepared to both teach computational concepts and use best practices so kids enjoy and see they can be successful in computer science. This is where you (and this Specialization) come in! In this Specialization you will both learn about the impacts of computing in our world and how to teach these impacts to K-12 students. We offer both the technical knowledge and also the pedagogical approaches for teaching these concepts. Along the way you’ll engage with freely available materials you can use in your own classroom, as well as learn from teachers currently teaching these concepts in their classrooms. In short - in this Specialization we'll teach you the computing concepts you need to know and then help you explore and evaluate lesson plans and resources to prepare you for your classroom.

  • Oui, Coursera offre une Aide Financière aux étudiants qui n'ont pas les moyens d'acquitter les frais. Demandez-la en cliquant sur le lien Aide Financière sous le bouton S'inscrire situé à gauche. Vous devrez remplir un formulaire de demande et vous serez averti(e) si elle est acceptée. Vous devrez répéter cette procédure pour chaque cours de la Spécialisation, y compris pour le Projet Final. En savoir plus.

  • Si vous vous inscrivez au cours, vous pouvez accéder à tous les cours de la Spécialisation et obtenir un Certificat lorsque vous terminez le travail. Si vous souhaitez seulement lire et examiner le contenu du cours, vous pouvez accéder gratuitement au cours en auditeur libre. Si vous n'avez pas les moyens d'acquitter les frais, vous pouvez faire une demande d'Aide Financière.

  • Ce cours est entièrement en ligne : vous n'avez donc pas besoin de vous présenter physiquement dans une salle de classe. Vous pouvez accéder à vos vidéos de cours, lectures et devoirs en tout temps et en tout lieu, par l'intermédiaire du Web ou de votre appareil mobile.

  • In each course you will evaluate and/or augment an activity or lesson plan, which you'll then be able to take straight into a classroom. Specifically, for each course:

    Course 1: Evaluate and Modify an Unplugged Activity on Networks

    Course 2: Use Fiction/Literacy Circles To Teach Computing

    Course 3: Evaluate and Add Interactivity to “History of a Pixel” Lesson Plan

    Course 4: Explore code.org for materials you can use for a lesson plan on Learning HTML

    Course 5: TBD

  • After successfully completing this Specialization, you will have foundational technical knowledge about the computational technology that surrounds us today and foundational pedagogical knowledge of how to teach that to others, particularly in the K-12 setting. Specifically, you will be able to:

    [1] Analyze various solutions to human problems that technology, computing, and the Internet have enabled - and analyze the impact these have had on our society, economy, and culture. (Impacts of Computing Knowledge)

    [2] Explain and utilize provided resources to teach various computing concepts that underlie the technologies and software that solve these problems for us. (Technical Knowledge)

    [3] Evaluate and reflect on your experiences learning about technology, computing, and the Internet and apply those to creating effective learning activities to support the learning of others. (Pedagogical Knowledge)

    [4] Evaluate resources for effectively teaching issues addressing computer science K-12 concepts: impacts of computing, data and analysis, and networks and the Internet. (Pedagogical Knowledge)

    [5] Complete and evaluate the APCSP Explore Task (in the culminating project). (Technical and Pedagogical KnowledgeI

  • Yes! This Specialization is designed as 1 of a set of 4 Specializations (all will be offered on Coursera) that will support the requirements of the California supplementary authorization. Additionally, this Specialization may support credentialing or authorization in other states. However, most states require a transcript from an accredited institution of higher education. This course can support that -- see “Will I earn university credit” below.

  • Yes, you can earn credit from the University of California San Diego for completing this Specialization. To do so you must first successfully complete the full Specialization. Then, you will need to (1) Enroll in an additional UCSD Extension course before completing the capstone ($500) and (2), complete part of the capstone project via an online proctoring service. After this is done, your Specialization course grades will be accumulated and a transcript with your final grade (both letter grade or pass-only supported) will be issued from UCSD with 4 graduate-level units. These are eligible to count towards the California Supplementary Authorization.

  • There are six courses in this Specialization, one covering each digital world and a final culminating project course. Each course is built around four weekly modules, which can each be completed in approximately three-five hours. However, completion time is very dependent on each learner and the time you’re able to dedicate to the Specialization each week. There are deadlines to help you complete in a timely manner (targeting completion in 24 weeks), but you can move faster (by taking courses concurrently) or slower as suits your needs.

  • Each course in the Specialization is built to stand alone and can be taken in the order you choose, or concurrently. However, the course order was developed to build from more individual-focused worlds (24 hours in your digital world, your personal data) to more outward-facing worlds (relationship, career, and global), so if you are taking them sequentially we recommend following their order within the Specialization. At minimum, we recommend starting with the 24 Hours in Your Digital World course and ending with the Culminating Project course.

  • In terms of the CSTA K-12 computer science standards, we’ll primarily cover learning objectives within the “impacts of computing” concept, while also including some within the “networks and the Internet” concepts and touching upon the “data and analysis” concept. Practices we cover include “fostering and inclusive computing culture”, “recognizing and defining computational problems”, and “communicating about computing”.
