Computer Studies - Senior
Computer Studies Senior is all about creating and problem solving and explores Computer Science pedagogy including best practices in teaching and learning in grades 11 and 12.
This course represents an exciting opportunity for teachers to expand their ability to jointly explore the principles of decomposition, pattern recognition, abstractions, and algorithms. Ontario Ministry documents and curriculum will be explored to develop student-centric activities so students are able to explore their passion for computing. Strategies will be developed to create a Computer Science classroom into a place where students are makers and creators and not simply consumers of technology. The course explores computing systems fundamentals, computing innovations, and important societal issues such as data privacy, environmental issues, and computing ethics.
