Learn to build a program, build a search engine, and build a social network. 3 months.

Computational Thinking for Educators by Google

The goal of this course is to help educators learn about computational thinking (CT), how it differs from computer science, and how it can be integrated into a variety of subject areas. As a course participant, you will increase your awareness of CT, explore examples of CT integrated into your subject areas, experiment with examples of CT-integrated activities for your subject areas, and create a plan to integrate CT into your own curricula.

CSTeachingTips.org

CSTeachingTips.org is a project to document and disseminate effective computer science teaching practices. These computer science teaching tips are based upon interviews with computer science teachers and education research. The tips are designed to help teachers anticipate students’ difficulties and build upon students’ strengths. Tips are posted online and are disseminated daily on Twitter (twitter.com/CSTeachingTips) and Facebook (facebook.com/csteachingtips/). The project is funded by the National Science Foundation (CNS #1339404) and is administered by Colleen Lewis, a computer science professor at Harvey Mudd College.

Nepris

Nepris connects teachers and students with the right industry experts, virtually without having to spend much planning time or leaving the classroom while providing an effective way for companies to extend education outreach and create equity of access.

Dr. Java

DrJava is a lightweight development environment for writing Java programs. It is designed primarily for students, providing an intuitive interface and the ability to interactively evaluate Java code. It also includes powerful features for more advanced users. DrJava is available for free under the BSD License, and it is under active development by the JavaPLT group at Rice University.

NCWIT Engage CS

Three features distinguish EngageCSEdu: 1) A living collection of materials from the CS community; 2)It is designed to engage a diverse population of students; 3) Is based on research for engaging and retaining students. The collection is a repository for CS1 and CS2 course materials, including assignments, tutorials, labs, assessments, lecture notes, exercises and projects.

CS for All Teachers

Previously known as the CS10K Community, CS for All Teachers provides a virtual home for teachers to connect with one another and with the resources and expertise they need to successfully teach computer science in their classrooms. With the support of a cohort of community ambassadors, PreK-12 teachers can get answers to their burning questions from the HelpSquad, share their experiences in small groups, participate in online events, search for resources, and learn new instructional strategies from their colleagues—all in an effort to ensure computer science for all.
