Google CS First PD

In this hands-on professional development workshop, teachers will learn how to use CS First, Google’s free ready-to-teach introductory computer science (CS) curriculum for elementary and middle school students. Students follow step-by-step instructional videos that introduce fundamental computer science concepts and build computer programs using Scratch, a block-based programming language.

During the workshop, teachers will learn about the importance of CS for all students and their role in creating a learning environment that fosters creative problem through peer-to-peer learning. Teachers will get a chance to learn about the free lesson plans, solution sheets and other educator enrichment resources included in the curriculum. At the end of the workshop, teachers will walk away with a plan of action and strategies for starting to teach CS First and a connection to the growing community of CS First teachers.

All in-person sessions will be held at CodeVA. We are located at 300 E Broad Street in Richmond, VA. Information for accessing online sessions will be sent to you after completing the registration form below.
