  3. Coding and the Arts: Connecting CS to Drawing, Music, Animation and More

    While there are books that discuss the intersection of the arts and computer science (CS), there are none written for K–12 teachers that cover the content overlaps between CS and the arts beyond a single programming environment, and that feature approaches and examples of practising artists. Coding and the arts fills that gap.

    CS sometimes gets a bad rap as dry, isolated and uninteresting work – the pursuit of analytically minded techies working alone – but programming is deeply creative. Explore how to apply computation to stretch the possibilities in many art forms, as well as how to pave the way for entirely new ones. By approaching programming tools as artistic media, you’ll connect the dots between programming, creativity and artistic expression.

  5. No Fear Coding, Second Edition: Computational Thinking Across the K-5 Curriculum

    Coding has become an essential skill for finding solutions to everyday problems, while computational thinking (CT) teaches reasoning and creativity and offers an innovative approach to demonstrating content knowledge and seeing mathematical processes in action. No fear coding introduced many K–5 educators to ways to bring coding into their curriculum by embedding computational thinking skills into activities for different content areas. This second edition features updated tools – including programmable robots and other physical computing devices – as well as new activities aligned to the ISTE standards for students and computational thinking competencies. No fear coding, second edition will help build students’ coding and CT knowledge to prepare them for the middle grades and beyond.
