Google's CS First Curriculum Introduction
Date & Time
Sunday, October 20, 2019, 9:30 AM - 11:00 AM
Teach computer science? Yes, you can with Google CS First! In this hands-on, three-hour professional development workshop, teachers will learn how to use CS First, Google’s free ready-to-teach introductory computer science (CS) curriculum for elementary and middle school students. Through this curriculum, students are introduced to fundamental computer science concepts and build computer programs using Scratch, a block-based programming language, by following step-by-step instructional videos. Teachers will get a chance to learn about the free lesson plans, solution sheets and other educator enrichment resources included in the curriculum. At the end of the workshop, teachers will walk away with a plan of action and strategies for teaching CS First and a connection to the growing community of CS First teachers.
