As we participate in the digital revolution, we need to train our children on skills for the digital age. Computational thinking (CT) has been recognized as one of the key 21st century skills and involves understanding a problem, designing a solution and expressing it in a form that a human or a machine can execute. CT has been introduced into the mainstream curricula in many countries and India has joined them. The National Education Policy 2020 recommends that mathematical and computational thinking will be given increased emphasis through a variety of innovative methods, including the regular use of puzzles and games that make mathematical thinking more enjoyable and engaging.
CSpathshala  is an Association for Computing Machinery India (ACM India) initiative to bring a modern computing curriculum to Indian schools.

Our Mission

To prepare our students to participate creatively in the digital age, CSpathshala proposes an activity based unplugged Computational thinking curriculum for primary and secondary schools.

 

Highlights:

  • Computational Thinking curriculum – Teaching computing without computers
  • Community created teaching aids: 200 lessons, provided at no cost to schools
  • Subset of teaching aids translated into Gujarati, Hindi & Marathi
  • 30,000 schools in Tamil Nadu learning Computational thinking as part of math curriculum
  • 300,000+ additional students from 11 states, 1200 schools. This includes 425 residential schools from AP social welfare, tribal welfare Gurukulams and Ashrams.
  • 90 Awareness workshop and training programs conducted [At no cost to schools]
    • 5400 participants from 2650 institutions
  • Volunteers: 400+ from 4 continents!
