Teaching Strategies for Global Impact

When you’re used to teaching programming and traditional CS content, working the global impacts of computing into class lessons can be a challenge. After all, isn’t that more like social science?

Indeed, teaching about social impacts requires a different set of teaching strategies than teaching programming. And if you’re teaching AP Computer Science Principles, there’s the additional challenge of preparing students for the Explore Performance Task, in which students are required to research a computing innovation and write about its impact.

Beyond day-to-day lesson plans, the Teach Global Impact collaborators have developed these articles and notes on meta-strategies to help you tackle social impacts in a CS classroom.
