Integrating Computer Science into the Content Areas

Fall Computer Science Education Launchpad: Integrating Computer Science into the Content Areas

In the past few years, Computer Science Education has moved into the forefront, due to the recently approved Computer Science/Digital Fluency learning standards, along with a new teacher certification area in New York State. Teachers and school districts across the state (and the region) are engaged in a very rich process of developing curricula and learning activities to engage all of their students in this increasingly important area.

To support these efforts, Manhattanville College’s School of Education is hosting a Fall event, which we are calling “Fall Computer Science Education Launchpad: Integrating Computer Science into the Content Areas.” Our goal is bring as many stakeholders (teachers, students, and administrators) as possible together to engage in discussions and workshops focused on integrating Computer Science across the curriculum.

This event will take place in person on the Manhattanville College campus and virtually via Zoom.

Fees:

  • Free to current Manhattanville College students
  • $15 per participant (payable by credit card, check, or school district purchase order).
  • Group discount: any school district bringing 3 or more people will receive a discounted rate of $10 per participant.
