Teaching and Engaging Students with Computer Science Principles Workshop

July 18 – 22, 2016

Does your school teach Computer Science yet? Would you like to learn about teaching the new Computer Science Principles course? Would you like to learn about some ways to attract as many gals as guys to take your first course in Computer Science Principles by use of games in an after school program to attract the under-represented students?

Kean University, New Jersey and CSTA  are hosting a professional development workshop week July 18 – July 22, 2016.  For five mornings you will learn all about teaching Computer Science Principles.  Barbara Froehlich is a master teacher of Computer Science Principles who currently teaches the pilot AP Computer Science Principles course at East Orange STEM Academy.  She will be sharing her understanding, experience,  and curriculum to teach Computer Science Principles in high school.  For five afternoons you will learn about holding an after school program with analog and digital games to teach Computer Science Principles.  Carolee Stewart of Kean University and her undergraduate research team will share with you their analog and digital games that come with story to both teach and engage underrepresented students in Computer Science principles. 

The workshops are free, and are partially funded by an NSF AISL Grant #1421806. The registration fee is $50, which will be refunded if you come each day. Professional Development CEU certificates will also be awarded on Friday. Space is limited to 20 teachers, so be sure to register early.
