E-learning has become a common practice for schools as coronavirus spreads across the nation. As Jonathan Blake Huer, chief learning officer for Eleven Fifty Academy, mentioned in this article, education will certainly change as a result. But here’s the catch: nobody knows exactly how it will change.

At Codelicious, we know that the competencies taught in computer science are preparing our educators and students to embrace whatever change comes their way. Here are three computer science outcomes that help teachers as they adjust to the new reality of remote learning:

Problem Solving

Computer science encourages teachers to problem solve, think critically, and collaborate effectively with their students. Seeking growth in these essential skills is just as applicable when facing new challenges like widespread e-learning.

Equity and Inclusion

Educators know that students bring more than just their brains to school. Varying leadership styles, communication skills, emotional coping mechanisms, personality traits, attitudes, and conflict resolution skills all come into play in today’s classroom. Though challenging, we acknowledge the need for teacher creativity when facilitating lessons that are accessible for all. The technology we explore in computer science is a wonderful tool that we can use to help students achieve.

Love of Learning

Teachers, the time is now to engage your own love of learning! Use e-learning to your advantage, regardless of your experience level. Much like computer science, e-learning best practices can be learned! Seek out targeted professional development opportunities to increase your mastery, then step back and admire how much your knowledge and confidence has grown.

Despite all the uncertainty, the computer science skills educators foster in students can guide us all as we venture into the world of e-learning. At Codelicious, we’re trying to help by offering some of our computer science lessons as free e-learning opportunities. Best of luck to all as we navigate what education looks like in the future!
