Educator uses discussion and manipulatives to illustrate the link between math and binary code.
Discussion should include the following key points:
Embark Labs is an education program that introduces elementary and middle school students to design and computational thinking in a hands-on, collaborative way.
Unit 1, Lesson 1.2: Introducing Binary: http://embarklabs.com/explorecsunit1free
In this lesson, students work in groups using classroom supplies and everyday objects to develop their own systems for encoding and sending simple binary messages, messages that only have two possible value.
A free online course helping educators integrate computational thinking into their curriculum
In Brain Rules, Dr. John Medina, a molecular biologist, shares his lifelong interest in how the brain sciences might influence how we teach our children and how we work. In each chapter, he describes a brain rule—what scientists know for sure about how our brains work—and then offers transformative ideas for our daily lives. http://www.brainrules.net/about-brain-rules
CS Unplugged is a collection of free learning activities that teach computer science through engaging games and puzzles that use cards, string, crayons, and lots of running around.
To earn the micro-credential, you must receive a passing evaluation for Parts 1 and 3 as well as a “Yes” for each component in Part 2.
(150-word limit for each response)
Educator must submit a video that highlights their discussion points and includes evidence of students’ ability to recognize patterns related to binary.
Provide a reflection, using the following questions as guidance (200-word limit):
