Here is a great new magazine.
“Kids, Code, and Computer Science magazine is a bi-monthly online and print magazine about learning to code, computer science, and how we use technology in our daily lives. The magazine includes hard to find information, for example, a list of 40+ programming languages for education, coding schools, summer tech camps, and more”
“We have smart, passionate and engaging tech industry professionals who would love to talk to your class about their jobs. Whether it’s career education or just understanding the different roles available in technology, we are here to help you find the right people to inspire your students.”
The mission of CodeClubWorld.org is to give every child in the world the chance to learn to code by providing project materials and a volunteering framework that supports the running of after-school coding clubs.
From their site, “UW CSE’s K-12 outreach program, DawgBytes, aims to introduce both students and teachers to the exciting world of computer science & engineering. Whether you are a K-12 student, a UW CSE student, a parent or an educator, we have opportunities for you! “
Free, Common Core-aligned courses for students, parents, and teachers in math and English language arts
Computer science should be part of everyone’s education, and everyone should have a path to a career in computing. Teachers of Exploring Computer Science (ECS) and Computer Science Principles (CSP) are putting this belief into action. The CS10K Community is where they come to connect with each other and with the resources and expertise they need to excel. With the support of a team of expert facilitators and supporting professionals, teachers get answers to their burning questions, share their experiences, and work together with others to develop materials and strategies they need to embrace powerful pedagogies, get students engaged with exciting technologies, and make the case to potential students and to school leaders that computer science education is integral to preparing future leaders.
Abstracts and slides from some of the presentations given at the 2012 Computer Science and IT Symposium. Lots of good material here!!!
The IEEE has a new Web site about computing as a career. It is targeted at pre-university students.
I like the career discovery page.
A HUGE list of opportunities for students, including scholarships
Some good lessons
This category concerns computers, the use of computer applications, computer programming, the Internet, and other computer-related topics taught in schools. It also concerns computer peripherals
Since some readers of this blog are teachers, I sometimes like to mention resources that can be used for teaching computer technology ( or anything, really ). This is one of those posts.
This site, lets you create any size wall posters from any size images and it is totally free to use!
