Introducing Computer Science in Primary Education

Teaching computer science, technological literacy and computational thinking

For teachers, by teachers

Share to Teach is an online teacher training platform which offers courses which help primary school teachers introduce computer science, technological literacy, and computational thinking to students ages four to 12.

All children should have a solid foundation to understand technology: how it works, why it works, and how to think in order to develop technological solutions. Computer science is an ideal way to teach 21st century skills while preparing students from a young age for a world of constant and rapid technological development.

Share to Teach’s courses are designed for classroom teachers with little or no previous experience teaching computer science. Our courses cover the following:

• Computer science theory
• Pedagogy
• Teaching approaches
• Classroom management strategies
• Curriculum, lesson plans and teaching resources
• Technology tool recommendations
