Learning Trajectories for Everyday Computing

Description

Watch Video >>
This video highlights a collaborative NSF STEM+C project between the University of Illinois-Urbana Champaign, UChicago STEM Center, and the University of Illinois-Chicago. The projects seeks to understand how to integrate computational thinking into elementary mathematics. It highlights the Learning Trajectories for Everyday Computing-2 (LTEC2) NSF project. This work involves the development and evaluation of integrated elementary mathematics and computer science/computational thinking lessons that align with learning trajectories for elementary computational thinking. LTEC2 research attempts to understand how students understanding of fractions is influenced by experiences with integrated lessons that combine mathematics with computational thinking.
