|Abstract:||By the school year 2022-2023, all teachers in Hawaii will be required to provide instruction in computer science for all K-12 students. Despite this new mandate, limited guidance has been provided from the state’s Department of Education as to what computer science instruction should look like in the classroom. To help address this need for training, the present project designed and evaluated an online computer science professional development module for upper-elementary teachers in a rural school district. The goal of the project was to (1) increase teachers’ knowledge of computer science, computing systems, and networks and the internet, and (2) increase teachers’ knowledge of upper-elementary standards for computing systems and networks and the internet standards. Seventeen participants (n = 17) completed the asynchronous professional development module along with a presurvey, pretest, embedded assessment, and a posttest. The professional development module¬ was determined to be effective in increasing teachers’ knowledge about computer science, and computer science instructional standards, as evidenced by growth between participants’ pretest and posttest scores, as well as by positive participant feedback.|
