Computer Science Connections for Middle School Teachers: 

A 4-day workshop and community of practice for New England teachers: 

Where:University of Massachusetts Lowell
When: Mon Aug 6 through Thu Aug 9, 2018

Google is supporting a 4-day professional learning workshop and a followup community of practice for middle school teachers of computer science. The project is called Computer Science Connections for Middle School Teachers, and it’s for all middle school teachers, from all subject areas. The project will be focusing on building connections between computer science and other subjects.

Whether you are new to computer science, intermediate, or advanced, this workshop is for you.  Teachers will be supported in learning a variety of technologies, learning from each other, and integrating computer science into their subject-area teaching practices. The workshop and follow-up community of practice sessions will be provided at no charge—thanks, Google!

A web site and full application information available soon. There will be housing support for teachers who are coming from driving distance. Letters attesting to PDP units will be provided to all participants who desire them.

More soon, and please mark your calendars now!

The ATOMIC Mission is to ensure that every Connecticut student receives world-class education in mathematics by providing vision, leadership and support to the K-16 mathematics community and by providing every teacher of mathematics the opportunity to grow professionally.
