    Another resource to support the 2016 ISTE Standards for Students:
    The Friday Institute's Computational Thinking and Design MOOC starts March 1.  It is a free, 8 week course for educators and the course objectives are:

    • Understand the components of digital-age problem solving: design thinking, computational thinking, and data literacy;
    • Connect digital-age problem solving to existing content and problem-solving processes;
    • Engage in the digital-age problem solving process through simulated activities;
    • Apply digital-age problem solving in a real-world context;
    • View digital-age problem solving in a variety of careers and subject areas;
    • Explore connections to computer science, coding, and making.

    The link had an error message, so here is the correct link to the course. 

    Thanks so much for sharing. I am really excited to participate in this course.

    For those who are taking it, let us know how it goes? Since the MOOC itself is not ISTE Standards related it might be interesting to keep this thread alive to discuss intersections between the course content and the Standards.

    I really like that idea Sarah. Maybe we can start a collaborative doc to add notes from the course and how it relates to the standards. I can get that started if anyone else is interested?
