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. In partnership with Chitkara University, CSpathshala, is organizing a workshop on 8th July 2017 from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm, at Chitkara International School, Sector 25, Chandigarh, 160014. The pre-lunch session will focus on teaching computing as a science targeting school principals and computing teachers. The afternoon session will deep dive into computational thinking, CSpathshala curriculum and teaching aids and is targeted at computing teachers.
The CSpathshala initiative provides teaching aids in the form of slides, lesson plans and student worksheets to the teachers at no cost. 70+ schools have joined the CSpathshala pilot for grades 1-8 for 2017-2018.
Lunch & Refreshments will be served.
