Is Computer Science taught in your High Schools? Want to help ensure it is?
Learning computer science empowers young people to compete in the global economy and pursue careers across all sectors because it teaches students computational thinking and problem solving skills applicable in any industry.
Yet, computer science is taught in only 1 of 4 high schools nationwide.
TEALS (Technology Education and Literacy in Schools) could be the answer to help you bring computer science to your students.
TEALS helps high schools build and grow sustainable computer science (CS) programs by pairing experienced and trained software engineer professionals with classroom teachers in high schools throughout the US. Teachers from various content backgrounds work in partnership with TEALS volunteers and learn the CS curriculum by team-teaching in their own classrooms.
TEALS volunteers and partner teachers create a ripple effect, impacting the students they teach, and the many students who will study CS in the future. Started in 2009 by Microsoft employee Kevin Wang who developed and ran the program in his spare time, TEALS was embraced and adopted by Microsoft in 2011 and is now nation-wide.
This webinar will help you understand the TEALS program, how it works and how to bring it to your schools. There is an important role for education foundations.
