Constellations Virtual Computer Science Professional Development Summit
June 21-22, 2021
In collaboration with Georgia Department of Education, Computer Science Teachers Association (CSTA), and the CS4GA, the Constellations Center for Equity in Computing is hosting a virtual computer science (CS) PD summit for K-16 educators.
This virtual summit is focused on increasing knowledge and action to
– broaden participation in CS education and continue developing and supporting K-12 CS teachers;
– make social justice issues in CS education a priority including equity, access, successful participation, and upward mobility;
– share research efforts and findings, and discuss inclusive and culturally responsive CS resources and strategies; and
– build community with K-16 CS educators.
The summit will emphasize how CS education can equip the next generation of students to address a wide variety of complex problems in the world. It remains critical that the people with computing skills that will solve these problems are representative of the world we live in.
