UNC Greensboro announced that the School of Education has been awarded a five-year, $6.1 million grant from the U.S. Department of Education.
The funding, administered through the Teacher Quality Partnership Grant Program, provides a teaching residency for 80 master’s-degree-level students, multiple professional development programs, and training for teachers so they can develop ways to integrate computational content and practices into K-12 instruction in the Rockingham and Surry school districts.
Computational literacy and practices go beyond knowing how to use computer hardware and complex software programs. Computational thinking refers to the ability to use computers and computational technologies to solve problems. Students will be taught how to think differently using the latest technology available.
