Professional Education

EHS is pleased to host the computer science and computational thinking modules.

The State of Ohio's HB 110 requires instruction in computer science and computational thinking to be provided in all educator preparation programs in Ohio. A panel of experts from public and private institutions in partnership with ODE and ODHE, determined that modules would be developed as a resource for IHEs to use in their programs.

Who can access?

Anyone interested in computer science and computational thinking is welcome to access the materials. The content is available in several formats. Individuals can work through the modules on the web. Institutions can download the course shell and convert it into their LMS (e.g., Canvas, Blackboard).

Topics covered.

Each module includes interactive content. Topics include decomposition, pattern recognition, abstraction, and algorithms. Also included are CS activities and lesson plans for PK-12 educators organized by grade bands.
