CSEdWeek 2017: The PLTW Network Celebrates!
Computer Science Education Week (CSEdWeek) is an annual event dedicated to inspiring K-12 students to get excited about computer science.
Across the country, members of PLTW network are engaging in the event and sharing their experiences with us on social media.
Check out our rundown of how the PLTW network is celebrating this year:
Me to my CS students: Hey, it’s Computer Science Education week! Aren’t you glad you get computer science every week and everyday?
You should have seen the smiles on their faces. #proudlobos #pltw #nlmusd #notjustcoding

No need for text books we have robots !! CS has changed the way I not only teach my CS students but also my CTE students. Our learning should be a product not a recall. Truly embracing #PBL style learning and teaching. pic.twitter.com/HRLN4dIbDK

I love seeing all the #physicalcomputing projects tweeted out today using Makey Makey, micro:bit, and Arduino microcontrollers! So glad to see kids creating and coding physical objects than just virtual ones. CS is truly more than just code. 👩💻👨💻 #CSEdWeek #CSforAll #PLTW pic.twitter.com/nDU067hiGF

Open ended problems to solve. Student choice & student voice. More opportunities to showcase work & share with others/get feedback --> new ideas are born. Students use a variety of tools to create solutions. #CSEdWeek #CSforAll #PLTW
