Computer Science Curriculum Training
Teachers deserve to have access to high-quality, standards-aligned K-12 computer science curriculum. When provided with high-quality curriculum, educators are relieved of the time-consuming task of sourcing and vetting curricular materials and modifying those materials to meet the needs of their learners. Instead, teachers can focus their energy and time where it matters most – in connecting with and supporting their students in engaging learning experiences. However, research has shown that high-quality curriculum is not a universal key to unlocking improved student outcomes. When paired with high-quality curriculum, curriculum-based professional learning fosters change in educator practice that is in turn reflected in improved student learning.
Our curriculum-based training is designed to directly impact teaching and learning. We…
model the teaching strategies and content that are included with Ellipsis Education
actively engage educators in the same kinds of learning activities they will carry out with their students
support teachers’ collaboration with one another so that they can create communities of practice and impact culture
encourage self-reflection so that teachers can thoughtfully move their practice forward
When implementing a new curriculum, it is essential that educators feel supported and that they have access to the information they need to use the new materials with integrity. Our experienced team is ready to engage with educators through a variety of curriculum-based professional learning offerings to assist as they bring Ellipsis Education curriculum into their classrooms.
Teachers will benefit from the modeling of facilitation, use of computer science resources for teachers, and best practices used by their workshop leaders. Whether you are teaching computer science in high school or computer science in primary schools, your training will include exploring computer science lesson plans and becoming familiar with the computer science curriculum guide. Even without a computer science teaching certificate, you will be ready to teach computing curriculum to your students.
