SCRIPT: Strategic CSforALL Resource and Implementation Planning Tool, is a framework to guide teams of district administrators, school leaders, and educators through a series of collaborative visioning, self-assessment and goal-setting exercises to create or expand upon a computer science education implementation plan for their students (CSforALL). This workshop supports school based teams in crafting a localized vision for Computer Science implementation.
School districts and other local education organizations are the unit of change toward creating rigorous, inclusive and sustainable K-12 computer science education. Participants will engage in a systems-level change process by addressing five key areas:
(2) Teacher Capacity and Development
(3) Curriculum and Materials Selection and Refinement
Participants will determine goals, create a plan, and outline next steps to bring a comprehensive CS education plan to their school/district.
Target Audience: LEA based teams
Teams must include: Central office administrator, building level administrator, school counselor, two content area experts. Other team members may include: educational leaders, K-12 teachers, school librarians, special education supervisors, and stakeholders involved in computer science programming. 15 people max per team.
Dates: Friday, October 25, 2019 and Monday, October 28, 2019
The Chester County Intermediate Unit is pleased to offer a 2-day intensive workshop at no-cost to introduce and prepare secondary educators to teach Carnegie Mellon University's CS Academy, a novel, world-class, online, interactive high school computer science curriculum that is entirely free.
Facilitated by a CMU CS Academy Certified Trainer, this workshop will provide a deep dive into the curriculum, as well as cover topics that include: CS pedagogy, collaborating in a CS classroom, empowering student creativity, and differentiating CS instruction for students with disabilities.
The CCIU believes all students should have equal access to rigorous computer science education in order to be prepared for the growing field of the 21st-century workforce.
