Greetings!

Regardless of what subject you teach, computer science is foundational knowledge for all students in the 21st century. Incorporating it in your classroom will give your students a huge leg up. Besides, this is a subject the kids love learning!


With the help of Code.org, I am providing no cost, one-day workshops for elementary school teachers, library media specialists, and technology integrators interested in teaching computer science.


Sign up now for one of these upcoming Saturday workshops.

Saturday, October 21st, 8:30 - 4:30, Hopkinton, NH

or

Saturday, November 4th, 8:30 - 4:30, Hopkinton, NH


What’s in a workshop?

In-person instruction from an experienced computer science facilitator, including an intro to computer science, pedagogy, an overview of the online curriculum, teacher dashboard, and strategies for teaching “unplugged” classroom activities. Over 10,000 teachers have participated in a workshop and the majority say it’s the best PD they’ve ever attended.


All costs are covered by Code.org.

There is no charge for these workshops. You’ll also receive (at no cost to you):

  • Printed curriculum guide

  • Certificate of completion (which could count for PD credit)

  • Classroom supplies for the unplugged lessons

  • Fun Code.org swag

  • Free Lunch!


Sign up now for these upcoming workshops on Saturday, October 21st, 8:30 - 4:30 or Saturday, November 4th, 8:30 - 4:30 so you can start teaching these life-changing skills!


If you have any questions or need further information, please do not hesitate to contact me.  Please feel free to forward to any interested teachers.  

Sincerely,
Karen Locke
