How do you provide ongoing support for teachers before and after your PD workshop? Is there a ‘one-size fits all’ model for providing teachers with this kind of support? Join us for this month's HOA - we'll answer these questions and more on Wednesday, March 1st from 2:00-3:00 PM PST. https://goo.gl/rgN9xn

We'll hear from CS4HS awardees, Alfredo Perez from Columbus State University and Sarbani Banerjee, Neal Mazur and Ramona Santa Maria from Buffalo State University about how they’ve built systems to support teachers’ ongoing development inside and outside of the PD workshop space. They'll share tips and tricks with plenty of time for questions, too. We hope to see you there!

We kicked off the CS4HS 2017-2018 program on the Google for Education blog announcing the organizations that we are working with during this year. Here is the link to the live blog post. We are thrilled to work in partnership with you during this next year and help teachers across the country thrive as a CS educators.

Please stay tuned for more news from the CS4HS team in the next few weeks about next steps.

Good Afternoon CS4HS community! I am a 6th grade bilingual teacher in New Haven , Connecticut...I'm a novice code.org user, I helped start a coding partnership with Yale undergraduates, and am looking for CS K-12 PD, especially loxal. Any strong suggestions? Thank you! davidjweinreb@gmail.com 

Hello everyone. We will be starting in less than 10 minutes with the College Board. Come join us and learn about the Seven Big Ideas of CSP. Come see us live and ask your questions to our panel.

I thought some of your teachers might be interested in this opportunity for their students.

The Google Code-in is a global, online contest introducing 13-17 year old pre-university students to open source development that runs until January 25th. This is Google's sixth year to run the contest, 2233 students from 87 countries have completed work in the contest over the past 5 years. Students work on tasks in categories such as coding, documentation, outreach, UI and research for 14 open source projects (including KDE, Wikimedia, Systers, Drupal, OpenMRS, FOSSASIA and Sugar Labs).

Please see the FAQS for more information. You can also contact the Code In program manager, Stephanie Taylor, directly at sttaylor@google.com if you have any questions at all.

Announcing "Computer Science Principles - Aligned Integration of Modeling and Simulation" online workshop.  Offered over 6 weeks, November 2 - December 11, 2015.

With support from Google’s CS4HS program, Santa Fe Institute’s Learning Lab is offering a free online course called “Computer Science Principles - Aligned Integration of Modeling and Simulation” (CSP-AIMS).  This course prepares high school teachers to integrate computer modeling and simulation into AP CS Principles courses and builds the community of teachers who are offering rich computational thinking (CT) experiences through modeling and simulation. 
 
For more information and to register, please go to: https://csp-aims.appspot.com
 
CSP-AIMS provides six weeks of free online instruction to educators who are interested in embedding modeling and simulation within College Board’s AP CS Principles. The course will begin the week of November 2, 2015 and run seven consecutive weeks, ending on December 11, 2015.  Course materials will be posted weekly.
 
During the workshop, teachers will learn how to implement a four-week computer modeling and simulation module within an AP CS Principles course.  The module will address the AP CS Principles Big Ideas 1-4 and demonstrate how modeling and simulation can be used to address the 2014-2015 Performance Tasks Create/Programming and Explore/Impact. All lesson resources are aligned to the AP CS Principles, CSTA K-12 CS Standards and Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS).

Course takers are expected to have familiarity with the AP CS Principles course framework and prior exposure to introductory computer science concepts and programming constructs is assumed.  The course was designed as professional development for high school Computer Science teachers and thus teaching approaches and best practices to increase student learning will be included.  Additionally, university faculty, school administrators, and others may benefit from gaining an understanding of modern scientific practice using computer models and simulation in the context of scientific inquiry.  (You will need a Google account to access the course.  Visit https://accounts.google.com/SignUp to set up an account if you don’t already have one.)
 
CSP-AIMS lesson materials leverage the University of New Mexico CS590 “Learning and Teaching Computer Science for All” professional development course in modeling and simulation and the UNM CS108 “Computer Science for All” course that were developed with funding from the National Science Foundation CE21 CS10K program.
