computer science workshops now available in Massachusetts

Did you know that there are professional learning workshops for teachers here in Massachusetts? Applications are currently open for the 2019-20 Professional Learning Program for middle and high school teachers.

Here in Massachusetts, there are over 16,800 open computing jobs. However, last year only 4,181 students took the AP Computer Science exam. Looking beyond jobs in tech, computer science opens up more opportunities than any other discipline and ensures students are well prepared for the future, no matter what field they pursue. All students deserve the opportunity to learn and it can start in your school — with you!

Designed to support middle and high school teachers before and during their first year teaching Computer Science Discoveries or Computer Science Principles, the Professional Learning Program begins with a five-day, in-person summer workshop followed by four additional sessions throughout the year. Best of all? No previous experience teaching computer science is needed.

Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis. We look forward to reviewing your application and to seeing you at a workshop soon!
