Connecting Computer Science and the K to 12 Classroom


This paper describes the continued investigation started in summer 2008 into integrating the Alice 3D virtual programming environment within the K to 12 school classroom. Three one-week workshops were held in the summer of 2009 for elementary, middle school and high school educators. These workshops introduced the Alice programming environment and provided training for the novice programmer. Lesson plan ideas and information on supporting resources were also provided. Teachers were asked to share their own ideas on how Alice could be integrated into their classrooms and what objects and resources they would need in order to be more effective. Based on feed back from the teachers attending, additional resources were developed for integrating Alice into the math curriculum.
