Subject: Bring Computer Science to you K-8 Classrooms for FREE!

Attention Principals, Administrators, Librarians, and Teachers!

This is not SPAM! This is not a "trick" email! Please forward to all educators in PA, NJ, and DE! CLASSES ARE FREE AND OPEN TO ADMINISTRATORS, LIBRARIANS, TEACHERS, AND ALL TECHNOLOGY SUPPORT PERSONNEL!

Code.org has developed a free elementary school curriculum that allows even the youngest students to explore the limitless world of computing. The courses blend online, self-guided and self-paced tutorials with “unplugged” activities that require no computer at all. Each course consists of about 20 lessons that may be implemented as one unit or over the course of a semester. Even kindergarten-aged pre-readers can participate.

Code.org is offering free workshops for K-5 educators and content-area teachers (librarians, tech-ed specialists, etc.) interested in teaching the Code.org elementary school computer science curriculum. The workshop will cover content for all three courses and teachers will receive the supplies they need to teach the course at no cost.

HAVE YOUR TEACHERS SIGN UP FOR A WORKSHOP TODAY AT http://code.org/professional-development-workshops !

EACH PARTICIPANT WILL RECEIVE A FREE CURRICULUM GUIDE, “SWAG” BAG AND SUPPORT FROM CODE.ORG! Classes are forming NOW for upcoming sessions of this exclusive training. TRAINING IS FREE. THE CURRICULUM IS FREE once you have completed the program. The training will be a single day (7 hours) or two-days (M/W or T/TH 3-1/2 hours each).

ANY DISTRICT WILLING TO PROVIDE THE SPACE AND TIME CAN HOST A TRAINING AT THEIR LOCATION ON AN UPCOMING SATURDAY / HOLIDAY / PD DAY! A strict minimum of 20-25 teachers is required! Additional training sites and labs are being secured for future training sessions. THERE IS LIMITED ACCESS FOR WALK-INS ON THE DAY OF TRAINING! DON’T BE TURNED AWAY, REGISTER NOW!

Excerpt below is from an article in the Washington Post:

“ Why the ‘coding for all’ movement is more than a boutique reform ” By Valerie Strauss October 17 at 4:00 AM

So, why have we committed our research to increasing access to computer science for all students? How do we answer Cuban’s call to caution against the fast rush, promoted lately by Silicon Valley interests, to teach all students coding? And how do we see the “computer science for all” movement positively impacting teaching and learning in the schools? Will it bring more progressive education into the schools despite much of its driving force being the creation of more jobs for the tech industry?

We have one answer to all these questions: Computer science can help interrupt the cycle of inequality that has determined who has access to this type of high-status knowledge in our schools. Just as public education is crucial for promoting reading and writing, it is equally important for introducing students to the fundamental concepts of computer science. Computer science drives innovation across all fields, from the sciences to the arts—across all careers, from medical assistants to auto mechanics. Students who have this knowledge have a jump-start in access to these careers, and they have insight into the nature of innovation that is changing how we communicate, learn, recreate, and conduct democracy.

- written by Jane Margolis, a senior researcher at the UCLA Graduate School of Education and Information Studies and author of “ Stuck in the Shallow End: Education, Race, and Computing ,” and Yasmin Kafai, a professor at the University of Pennsylvania Graduate School of Education and author of “ Connected Code: Why Children Need to Learn Programming .”
These workshops will be led by experienced Code.org K-5 Affiliates in over 60 cities across the United States. For more information or to sign up for a workshop, please visit http://code.org/educate/k5 .

My proposal so far...

The Missed Opportunities Series
A wide-ranging, interlinking, youth action research project that explores power, privilege, and difference through essential questions as a way to build critical literacy skills, employ various media as a means of storytelling, and empower youth towards authentic civic engagement. We recognize the position of educational agencies to influence community-wide discussions of power, privilege, and difference in the effort to create more just and equitable communities . Through an open online framework, students and teachers will be encouraged to contribute to an ongoing, collective knowledge base around what we see as missed opportunities to inspire community transformation through Philadelphia classrooms. What are we NOT discussing that we MUST in order to secure a brighter future for ourselves, our communities, and the wider world?

Is anyone interested in working together on an application for the LRNG Innovation Challenge? I want to create some cross-community collaboration.
Innovation Challenges support educators working to create and spread connected learning opportunities for young people. Funded by Educator Innovator partners, these grant opportunities leverage the creativity, experience, and knowledge of educators like yourself to reimagine learning.
