For the next three months, I am excited to work with a team of professional educators to advise the development of K-12 Computer Science Standards in California. By formally providing CS standards, educators in California are enabled to teach CS concepts to their students. Moreover, the suggested scaffold and progression will ensure that all students are able to access a discrete CS course during their high school experience.
With that said, I am interested to see how in-service teachers can be supported in the coming years, as they explore ways in which CS can be incorporated in their classrooms. At the high school level, credentialing is a concern for teachers and administrators - who can currently teach CS and how can we support teachers who need additional coursework to earn an additional credential to teach CS?
Perhaps programs like Boise State University's Educational Technology Program can offer courses that would count toward the Supplementary Authorization in Computer Science?
