While there is no singular solution to providing equitable, high-quality learning experiences for our youngest learners, we do know that by supporting proactive policies, professional development, and selecting research-based STEM curricula, we can better prepare the next generation of problem solvers. But with preschool program enrollment declines ranging from 15% to 41% during the 2020-2021 pandemic school year according to the National Institute for Early Education Research (NIEER), how can we continue to bridge the gaps caused from these inequitable learning opportunities?

As educators, we’re always looking for ways to measure our learners’ success beyond test scores. In Computer Science, it can be especially difficult to differentiate between students just using computers and students actually understanding fundamental concepts. When you evaluate your students’ CS proficiency, remember to take these things into consideration:

Today is #SELDay! We’re excited to celebrate this international day of building bonds and re-imagining communities with you. Studies show that SEL (Social and Emotional Learning) provides many benefits to students—from improved social-emotional skills, well-being and behavior to improved academic outcomes—and these results are long-term and global, with proven positive impact up to 18 years later on academics, conduct problems, emotional distress, and drug use.
