BUILDING A TEACHING TOOLKIT
In February 2016, TYTHEdesign connected with CS4All to serve as a strategic partner in the development of a Blueprint to guide CS implementation in schools.
I worked alongside TYTHE’s founder to develop 9 client- and 5 stakeholder-facing workshop. Together we analyzed research objectives and needs, and worked with the CS4All team to develop the format for the final deliverable. Throughout the process, I was also responsible for writing several blog posts directed toward CS4All stakeholders to share progress and initial findings from our collaborative sessions.
