About this talk

The session will explore the Coding with Feeling Unit. The unit identifies social emotional learning content and activities that support the understanding of computer science and computational thinking concepts. Beginning with sub-concepts such as decomposition, pattern recognition and generalization, students learn to analyze how we communicate feelings through different forms of expression. They will also explore how to use data to identify what may cause different feelings. Students will learn how to apply algorithms and programming to create a computing artifact that models a specific feeling or emotion. In the second part of the unit, students analyze different strategies used to help manage and regulate different feelings. For the final project, they will create a computing artifact that can be used to demonstrate or support a selected strategy.
