The Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) India has started an education initiative (CSpathshala) to promote the teaching of computer science in schools.
Computing is ubiquitous and people from every walk of life will need to be familiar with computing in some form or the other. This will give rise to a huge demand for computing skills leading to a talent shortage unless computational thinking is introduced in schools right now. As we participate in the digital revolution, we need to train our children on skills for the digital age. We need to teach our children to be socially responsible citizens and train them to be creators, inventors and adopters of technology. It is therefore imperative to teach computing, which promotes problem solving, computational thinking and critical reasoning skills, at par with Mathematics and Sciences.
CSpathshala, in partnership with Andhra Pradesh Department of Social Welfare, is organizing a 2 day training program for APSWR teachers in Eluru on 6th and 7th July, 2018.
