CSinPA K-8 Virtual Pathway Cohort

February 1, 2021

Free

Expand computer science (CS) learning at your school

A 100% virtual professional learning experience, the Pathway is designed to support K-8 educators to grow their CS capacity. This is an asynchronous Schoology course. Four synchronous checkpoints are built-in along the way. The course access code will be sent a few days before the February 1, 2021 start date.

Provided at no cost. Act 48 credit available.

No CS experience needed

The Pathway is open to any K-8 educator involved with computer science instruction, including:

  • grade-level teachers
  • content area teachers
  • special education teachers
  • English language teachers
  • librarians
  • specialists
  • instructional coaches

While not required, it is recommended that schools engage with a team of 2+ educators to allow for collaboration throughout the Pathway.

Learn. Teach. Advocate.

Participants engage as learners, teachers, and CS champions (advocates) as they develop and implement a small-scale pilot project to expand CS access for students.

Participants will:

  1. Access and use the K-12 CS Framework and CSTA standards
  2. Initiate and reflect on a small-scale implementation pilot
  3. Recognize and create a plan to close equity gaps in CS education, specifically for students with disabilities and other historically underrepresented populations, such as students of color and female students
  4. Leverage community and stakeholder partnerships
  5. Articulate the need for CS in education and our communities
