LSRI in the 2020 STEM for All Video Showcase
Find out how LSRI faculty and researchers are helping elementary students learn computational thinking skills. Check out the LTEC-2 project video as part of the 2020 STEM for All Video Showcase. Along with the video features work that LSRI's Jim Pellegrino, Brian Gane, and Noor Elagha have been doing for the LTEC-2 project.
"Assessing students' computational thinking competencies is a major focus of the LTEC-2 project," says Brian Gane. "We have approached this challenge by building off of cognitive theories about how students develop computational thinking (CT), as represented by different CT learning trajectories. Using these learning trajectories as a starting point, we then used an evidence-centered design process to develop assessments that allow students to demonstrate their CT knowledge, skills and abilities. We are currently in the process of testing, refining, and validating these assessments with students that participated in the project."
