Computing plays a bigger role in the lives of young people today than ever before. Yet, there is a widespread lack of knowledge of what constitutes the core of computing: is it just the use of word processors and spreadsheets or are there more fundamental principles that underlie this science. Can we show young people how a computational model can be used to solve a variety of problems, from basic problems in mathematics to answering questions in biology? CSpathshala is an Association for Computing Machinery India (ACM India) initiative to bring a modern computing curriculum to Indian schools.
To prepare our students to participate creatively in the digital age, industry leaders and top academicians in the country are working together to bring a modern computing curriculum along with teaching aids to Indian schools. CSpathshala’s mission is to teach computing as science to every child in every school in India by 2030!
- CS curriculum for grades 1-8
- Teaching aids: 25 lessons/grade to be taught over 30-40 periods, provided at no cost to schools
- 2nd year pilot (2017-18): 175 schools [Pune, Kochi, Chennai, Goa, Delhi, Kolkata, Mumbai, Bangalore, Chandigarh, Nagpur, Sabarkantha district, Hyderabad]
- 350+ teachers from 150+ schools trained on Computational Thinking
- Reached 1000+ educators through CSpathshala workshops
- Volunteers: 200+ from 4 continents!
What Teachers are Saying
Structured. Uniform. Implementable program.
One more very informative workshop (9 June 2017) by cspathshala team. thank you. With every workshop our inspiration doubles.
We would rather thank you and ur team for developing such wonderful content. It totally changes the paradigm of teaching computer science in school. I am very impressed and looking forward to use it in my class and contribute in your forum. (17 June, 2017)
This session was one of the best sessions cause kids came out with very good examples of algorithm in day to day life. Could do with some more examples to explain to students
Thank you so much for such a great initiative taken by cspathshala to implement the very basics of computer science by the well structured curriculum and the support.The workshop gave a deep insight of what is computing.looking forward to implement the curriculum in my school.
Thanks for the very enriching workshop (17 June, 2017) and the great initiative taken by cspathshala to structure the curriculum of computer science for schools in such an articulate manner.
Thanks for all your support. Kids are enjoying the classes
