Computer Science K-12 Learning Standards
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted
CC BY-NC-SA
Rating
0.0 stars

Effective and relevant computer science education is essential to achieving our vision that “every student is ready for college, career, and life.” While attention to computer science education has increased in recent years, a lack of awareness about its content and potential impact is widespread. The Washington State Computer Science K–12 Learning Standards are designed to enhance teacher understanding and improve student learning so that students are better equipped for college, career, and life.

Washington is committed to implementing high-quality computer science instruction to:

* Increase the opportunity for all students to gain knowledge of computer science.
* Introduce the fundamental concepts and applications of computer science to all students, beginning at the elementary school level.
* Make computer science at the secondary level accessible, worthy of a computer science credit, and/or equivalent to math and science courses as a required graduation credit (see Level 3B of computer science standards).
* Offer additional secondary-level computer science instruction that allows interested students to study facets of computer science in depth and prepare them for entry into a career or college.

Learning standards describe what students need to know and be able to do. Standards are worded broadly to allow flexibility at the district, building, and classroom levels.

Rating
0.0 stars

As schools work to increase success for all students, it is important to recognize the impact of bias in classrooms, instructional materials and teaching strategies. Bias in general may be identified by determining whose interest is being portrayed and whose interest is being excluded. Evaluating for bias requires us to learn about others and to respect and appreciate the differences and similarities. This evaluation guide includes components on gender/sex, culture/ethnicity, socio-economic status, disability/status, and family structure.

In this update to the 2008 standards, Washington is adopting the 2016 Technology Standards for Students
released by the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE). These standards were developed
collaboratively with teachers, administrators, subject matter experts, state and national associations, and
stakeholders in educational technology. Teams of Washington teachers, technology integration
specialists, and teacher-librarians have reviewed these standards to ensure they effectively meet the
needs of Washington students.

These standards emphasize the ways technology can be used to amplify and transform learning and
teaching, and they resonate with our state’s aspiration to empower connected learners in a connected
world. In addition, they complement statewide efforts to enhance instruction in digital citizenship and
media literacy, which are critical elements of preparing our students for careers, post-secondary
aspirations, and beyond.
