Previous event topics include: rural CS, CS as a fundamental literacy, and CS for all ages. The '24 theme has not been selected yet.

CS4GA Professional Learning Workshop

Virtual Session

Teachers are constantly improving their praxis. Computer Science teachers have a wide range of experiences and hail from a wide range of instructional paradigms. Some practitioners that teach computer science are media specialist, elementary gifted teachers, CTAE teachers, Math teachers, science teachers, AP teachers, IB teachers, etc. All these teachers actively seek new strategies for sharing computer science with their students within their context. Our PL Workshop is intended to something for everyone in this space. One day will be broad, with sessions for everyone. Another day will be focused on a particular theme or computing niche such as cyber or AI, again with activities and practices valuable to a wide range of teachers. This workshop will also co-locate with our district implmentation workshop so some educators will spend three days with us, building their computer science program.
