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 computational thinking curriculum for primary and secondary schools along with teaching aids.
- Computational Thinking curriculum
- Teaching aids: 200 lessons, provided at no cost to schools
- Subset of teaching aids translated into Gujarati, Hindi & Marathi
- 3 Lac students from 11 states sampling curriculum [Andhra Pradesh, Chandigarh, Delhi, Goa, Gujarat, Karnataka, Kerala, Maharashtra, Tamil Nadu, Uttar Pradesh, West Bengal]
- 66 Awareness workshop and training programs conducted [At no cost to schools]
- 3604 participants from 1700 institutions
- Volunteers: 250+ from 4 continents!
What Teachers are Saying
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.
Combinations another popular lesson which through the examples of the pants, shorts and shirts example made the concepts very clear
Real life examples and worksheets make difficult concepts easy for children especially for those who have a fear of Maths find the same concepts easy to comprehend
Activities and games from CSpathshala lessons help students enjoy. The activities in patterns for the lower classes through blocks and older classes through drawing allow space for creativity
Structured. Uniform. Implementable program.
Concepts of shapes and patterns taught through CSpathshala lessons across grades 2 to 6 have made the task simpler for the Maths teacher. Two or more cutouts of shapes given to the students to make patterns. Children started enjoying the learning experience through the activities. In Maths a pen & paper based learning aligned with CSpathshala activities have helped in enriching the curriculum and ‘truly grilled concepts in the students mind’
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
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.
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)
