About This Webinar

Presented by Evan Weinberg (@emwdx)

Figuring out when and how to use computers to iterate, calculate, search, and organize information is called computational thinking. Through programming, spreadsheets, and visual models, students can develop a better understanding of abstract concepts than with pencil and paper alone. I will share ways to develop computational thinking skills in students, and in the process, help them develop their skills in the required curriculum.

Webinar hosting presenter Evan Weinberg
I'm mildly obsessed with the intersection of play and learning, which is great for a math and science teacher. I also program to make cool stuff and avoid busy work. I blog at http://www.evanweinberg.com.

Global Math Department webinar platform hosts 20 Jan: The Why and How of Computational Thinking
The Global Math Department began as a group of teachers who knew each other through Twitter, math education blogs and Twitter Math Camp. Since 2012 The Global Math Department community has grown into a multi-faceted group of math educators who love to share their ideas related to teaching and learning mathematics. We recognize that as educators we are charged with promoting equity and access within mathematics instruction. In addition, we believe it is crucial that teachers be provided with quality resources and ideas that they can use immediately with their students. Lively and friendly conversations in our weekly webinars encourage all participants to share and continue to grow as educators.
