Description

The Computational Thinking Summer Conference (2019) is a professional development opportunity for teachers and community members interested in Computational Thinking and Computer Science education. Located at Jasper Place High School in west Edmonton, it will gather both experienced and novice teachers and will encourage community building and sharing of expertise.

Sessions are designed primarily with Divisions II through IV in mind but many will also be valuable to teachers of younger grades. While some sessions are targeted to a specific audience, teachers are welcome to attend as many sessions as they feel are valuable.

Sessions are taught by active teachers, professors or industry professionals and funding is provided by Google through their CS Educators PD grant. The conference is organized by a team of volunteer teachers who are very excited to bring you this event!
