Event Description

New Jersey Computer Science Week will include professional development offerings across all grade bands and emphasize the need to prepare K-8 teachers to teach computer science and adopt the new standards starting in 2022. Public schools in New Jersey are required to implement the new Computer Science 8.1 and Design Thinking 8.2 Standards this September. This week will equip K-12 teachers to incorporate the standards in any subject area classroom. No computer science knowledge or experience required.

Participants will attend one day in-person and four days of virtual meetings on Zoom. Monday’s in-person event, held at The College of New Jersey (TCNJ), in Ewing, N.J., will enable K-12 teachers to gather for fellowship, collaboration and support.

Grade band-specific workshops will be offered virtually Tuesday through Friday. Workshops catering to K-2, 3-5, 6-8 and 9-12 teachers will provide specific lessons and ideas that can be implemented in the classroom.
