Professional Learning Outside of - ECT

I’ve been a Computer Science Fundamentals facilitator in Minnesota since 2015 and a public school educator for 11 years!

As I started learning about CS education, I found a lot of research from the DevTech Research Group andDr. Marina Bers out of Tufts University to be incredibly helpful as I spent time thinking about what it could look like in my classroom. I recently made a job transition to work at Tufts with Dr. Bers and the Early Childhood Technology (ECT) Graduate Certificate program.

I wanted to share the program in this thread in case you are looking for additional professional learning resources beyond our CSF workshops!
