    About Dr Katherine Hayden

    Dr Katherine Hayden is Professor Emerita in the School of Education in California State University. She has more than 25 years in public education, first as a classroom teacher and later teaching educational technology to pre service candidates. Her areas of research include professional development of teachers, online learning and integration of computational thinking in classroom curricula.

    Teachers face unique challenges and opportunities to support children’s curiosity about computer science. Computational thinking (CT) provides a versatile bridge to computer science and serves as a powerful problem solving skill across the curriculum. Be inspired to integrate CT into your content lessons to support the learning of both subject content and computer science. Proven success lessons, designed and field-tested by teachers in grades 4-6, and important strategies and resources for teachers will be shared.

    What aspects of Computational thinking do you recognise in everyday classrooms and/or what areas would you like to know more about from Dr Youwen Ouyang and Dr Katherine Hayden's session?
