DOE Looking for CS Lesson Plans
Georgia State University, with support from Google and Georgia Dept of Education, is conducting a research study on computational thinking and integrated computing instruction in Georgia K-12 schools. Our goal is to understand how computational thinking and computing are taught outside of computer science classrooms. Towards this goal, we would like to collect lesson plans used by teachers in non-CS classrooms that include computational thinking or integrated computing elements.
Each participating teacher will receive $100 for less than 1 hour of work. In this hour, the teacher will complete a survey that asks them to describe their lesson plan by answering questions. The research team will provide office hours in which teachers can receive support in completing the survey.
Eligibility: To participate, you must
While we welcome the submission of multiple lesson plans, we can only compensate teachers for the first lesson plan that they submit to collect a representative sample.
If you are interested in participating, please complete this form to receive more information. https://forms.gle/y8oLR9vmGFuQvzqv8
