Developing an Algorithmic Awarness in the Classroom

In this session we will discuss approaches to teaching algorithmic principles in first year classrooms (and beyond). In the first part of this session, we will engage with 2-3 short activities that can be used to spur discussion with students about the “hidden” ways algorithms influence our encounters with information and our approaches to decision-making. The second part of this session is dedicated to discussing and brainstorming additional activities to bring into our respective classrooms.

Participants will leave this session with at least 3 ideas of activities they can use to start discussions with students in their classroom, but may potentially brainstorm many more with their co-participants.
