Computing workshop for high school educators

Colden Pond, Rooms 1350 and 1400

Monday, June 26, 2017 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm

High school educators interested in learning computer science skills and trends they can use to help prepare students for the 21st century workforce are invited to participate in this summer workshop, June 19-20 and June 26-27.

Interested individuals need no background in computer science to participate.

Participants will receive hands-on introductions to new technology during each day of the workshop. They will work through entertaining exercises suitable for students, develop lesson plans and test those plans by teaching them to peers.

The workshop incorporates Scratch, a kid-friendly and popular visual programming language, and Cloud 9, a cloud-based environment that allows students to publish their work, as well as mobile app development using Android Studio and Swift Playgrounds, internet of things, and Hour of Code.

The first 25 individuals to register will receive $400 plus lodging expenses for completing the program. Registrants also may choose to receive one or two graduate credit hours from Northwest and a professional development certificate.

Participants will revisit workshop topics during a series of “meet-ups” Oct. 5, 2017, and March 1, 2018, and Google Hangouts on the first Thursday of each month. The experience culminates May 3, 2018, with “Computingpalooza,” a conference and competition at Northwest designed to foster interest in computer science among students in the region.
