The commitment states that CodeHS will build out new curriculum units including coding and music, art, sports, math and physics, host professional development sessions around the country for over 100 teachers, and help teachers receive graduate credit for CodeHS PD courses.
CodeHS is excited to be a part of the CSforALL movement again this year. The company believes that coding is a foundational skill, just like reading and writing, and helps make computer science education fun and accessible to all. The CSforALL Summit is an annual gathering of more than 400 stakeholders including educators, school districts, and representatives from government, industry, higher education, and the nonprofit sector. This year’s conference was held on the campus of Wayne State University in Detroit, Michigan.
“There will be more than 200 commitments made to the CSforALL movement this year at the Summit,” said Ruthe Farmer, chief evangelist, CSforALL. “It’s companies like CodeHS that are making high-quality computer science an integral part of the educational experience for students of all abilities.”
Commitments all center on addressing equity for underrepresented students, computer science accessibility for students with disabilities, cybersecurity education, and evidence-based computer science education pathways.
CodeHS partnered with St. Catherine’s University this year to offer teachers graduate credit after completing a CodeHS professional development course. To keep up to date with the newest curriculum and PD opportunities, following the CodeHS blog at ReadWriteCode.blog or email email@example.com.
