When viewing the Technical Program schedule, on the far righthand side
is a column labeled "PLANNER." Use this planner to build your own
schedule. Once you select an event and want to add it to your personal
schedule, just click on the calendar icon of your choice (outlook
calendar, ical calendar or google calendar) and that event will be
stored there. As you select events in this manner, you will have your
own schedule to guide you through the week.
You can also create your personal schedule on the SC11 app (Boopsie) on your smartphone. Simply select a session you want to attend and "add" it to your plan. Continue in this manner until you have created your own personal schedule. All your events will appear under "My Event Planner" on your smartphone.
Understanding Computational Thinking: Linking Education Pathways to Workforce Needs.
SESSION: Special Topic: Workforce Development
EVENT TYPE: Workforce Development Panel
TIME: 1:30PM - 2:15PM
Panelists:Irene Lee, Joe Ippolito, Nadine Miner, Creighton Edington, David Kratzer, Lorie Liebrock
ABSTRACT: Over the past several years, thought leaders within the computer science and education communities have defined computational thinking within their own communities of practice and discussed the importance of computational thinking as a key ingredient in technology-enabled discovery and innovation. This panel, composed of CT-enabled STEM professionals and educators, seeks to ground and extend the national dialog on Computational Thinking (CT) by linking findings from an occupational analysis of CT Enabled STEM professionals to educational programs developed to meet these workforce needs.
The questions addressed by this panel are:
1) What does Computational Thinking look like in practice among scientists, engineers and technologists in various industry sectors and national laboratories?
2) How are core Computational Thinking skills nurtured in K-20 students as they prepare for STEM careers?
3) What practices have been successful in broadening the engagement and participation of underrepresented groups in Computational Thinking?
