I provide professional development training in computer science for secondary teachers in six counties in Northern Nevada.
Computer science knowledge for all students in Nevada is paramount to current and future occupations and trades.
Having teachers who understand computer science standards, concepts and principles is critical to meet the demands of student growth and understanding.
Teachers not only need to teach standards but also find engaging opportunities for the students to apply the learning. Jr. Botball will be another opportunity for students to be exposed to the rigors of the workplace and become better problem solvers.
Computer Science is a fast-paced ever-changing field of study and education. My personal professional development will be amplified throughout Northern Nevada as I return from the Jr. Botball challenge and share with the six districts I serve as a CS facilitator.
Sharing the excitement and fun of applied CS and problem-solving skills, learned from the Botball Challenge will be shared with teachers and students in Northern Nevada.
Students will learn that challenging problems can be overcome through collaboration, perseverance, and applied skill sets. Teachers who are now required to teach CS not only need training in the CS standards but need the opportunity to apply the teaching of such standards.
