Workshop on Bringing Computational Thinking to Schools
Date(s) - 31/07/2018

Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham
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 (www.cspathshala.org) is an Association for Computing Machinery (ACM India: india.acm.org), not for profit, initiative to bring a modern computing curriculum to Indian schools. ACM India Coimbatore chapter along with Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham is organizing a workshop on 31st July 2018 from 9:00 am to 2:00 pm, at Muralikrishna Hall – CIR Building, Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham, Ettimadai, Coimbatore – 641112.
We would like to invite all principals, computer and math teachers from primary and secondary schools in Coimbatore to the workshop.
The CSpathshala initiative provides teaching aids in the form of slides, lesson plans and student worksheets to the teachers at no cost. 100,000 students in 11 states are sampling the CSpathshala curriculum.
Lunch & Refreshments will be served.
