Young Adult Roundtable: Computational Thinking
One way to start thinking about what computational thinking is all about is to take part in an activity that connects library staff to an actual project that teens might work on. In this session participants get hands-on experience and a chance to discuss what computational thinking is and how it can be integrated into teen activities.
Participants will be able to:
Articulate some of the core concepts of computational thinking
Begin designing activities for and with teens that connect CL and CT
Understand the value of integrating CT into activities for and with teens
Connect CT to pre-existing library activities and services.
This training is part of the YALSA/COSLA IMLS grant funded project "Transforming Teen Services: a Train the Trainer Approach."
