Nex+Gen Founding Teacher to Attend 'Superstar' Workshop

Michael Steele is one of 100 teachers selected to attend the workshop sponsored by the National Science Foundation and the National Center for Women and Information Technology.

Michael Steele, a nex+Gen Academy founding teacher, has been nominated and selected to attend a workshop for 100 “superstar” teachers of the Exploring Computer Science (EC) and CS Principles courses. The meeting is being sponsored by the National Science Foundation (NSF) and the National Center for Women and Information Technology (NCWIT). It will be held on Dec. 8-9 in the Washington D.C. area.

The 100 Teachers Workshop is being held to recognize top CS educators, and to provide them with opportunities to network with other teachers, attend an equity workshop, and trade “Nifty Assignments/Activities” that they've  done with your students.

 

NSF has long been involved in the national movement to improve and increase K-12 computer science education. It funds the development of both ECS and CS Principles, and the professional development efforts that many teachers have attended. The real work of scaling CS courses to reach all high schools, though, critically depends the terrific on-the-ground, in-the-classroom work being done every day by computer science teachers like Steele.
