Computer Science Practice Standards - An introduction to #CSforALL

This past fall (2015), I was lucky enough to be a part of the K-8 Computer Science Standards Committee for the state of Arkansas. Arkansas is the first state in the US to require all students in K-8 learn computer science standards. These standards will be embedded in other curriculum areas, CS will not be a stand alone subject. All of Arkansas's high school's must have CS courses available for interested students as well.

The Computer Science Standards (Linked HERE from the ADE Website) begin with a set of Computer Science Practices. These practices exhibit the "habits of mind" that it takes to succeed in the area of Computer Science. Many teachers will agree that these are also great habits to succeed in every subject.

Using Piktochart, I decided to make a printable poster for these practices. Please feel free to use and share this poster with your fellow teachers. Link to download poster:


  1. This is very nice information i like that. We are also provide online education and get knowledge About Pacific Cambria University and after complete your education take your course degree.

  2. There are many people who have to take an adult education course for one reason or another. No matter what your reason is you will need to make sure that you find the best option for you to get that done. You will want to look at all of your options including online adult education before you decide.

  3. Computer Studies must be made a subject by all the educational intuitions in the world. The world which we see today is nothing without digital help. Good work. I support this blog to make Computer Science as a compulsory subject in school curriculum.
