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!
- Teaching aids: 40 lessons/grade for grades 1-8
- Pune pilot (2016-17): 15 schools, 35 teachers, 5000 students
- CSpathshala workshops: 600+ teachers
- Training programs: 20 conducted so far
- Workshops: Pune, Delhi, Ahmedabad, Chennai, Kochi, Kolkata, Mumbai
- Volunteers: 125+ and growing…
What Teachers are Saying
Thanks for all your support. Kids are enjoying the classes
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
We are giving some home work also. e.g. write an algorithm to pack your bag. Write an algorithm to finish the home work etc. Concept of loop was given. Students response to it was extremely good. They gave beautiful examples from day to day life
Structured. Uniform. Implementable program.
