No Such Thing: K12 Education in the Digital Age
CodeScty: Schoolhouse Rock for Computer Science. But Lit!
This is a live concert hosted by CS For All and NYC Men Teach at 2020's first Men of Color Lunch and Learn.
CodeSCTY uses original hip hop music, videos and experiential activities to teach computer science and computational thinking concepts to young people. Imagine Schoolhouse Rock for computer science – but lit!
"Our suite of content includes original music, videos, and curricula that provides a foundational understanding of computational thinking and technology, laying the groundwork for grasping more advanced concepts. Our curriculum, accessible through our mobile app and website, includes our original content, as well as a facilitation guide for activating the materials in the computer science classroom. Our goal is to transform young people from passive users of technology to innovative problem solvers and visionaries that are equipped with the tools they need to reimagine society. In a soundbite, we teach how to think before learning how to code."
