The NYCDOE’s Computer Science Education Team is working hard to support schools with the transition to remote learning. Below, we link resources for educators who have already been trained by CS4All, educators who have not yet taken part in CS4All programs, and families.
This page will be updated on an ongoing basis.
For current CS4All schools
These resources are meant to support schools that have been trained by the Computer Science for All initiative in SY 2019-20 to continue the implementation of computer science education in a remote learning environment.
Schools that are currently or have previously been a part of a CS4All program should bookmark our Support Dashboard to get a continually updated list of all of the resources we are creating to support you in your implementation. You can also find many resources in our Remote Learning Resources folder!
Not a CS4All school? The registration period for SY 2020-21 CS4All programs and support has been extended through June 2020, or until our capacity has been reached. All NYCDOE public and charter schools are invited to register for computer science training with CS4All, regardless of whether or not they have already started teaching computer science. Register Now!
If you are brand new to computer science education, but would like to use this time to try something new, we recommend you look at the grade band-appropriate document in the Remote Learning Resources folder!
Families looking for ways to bring computer science to their household, or teachers looking for activities that students can easily do at home, can utilize materials in our Remote Learning Resources folder!
Teachers: the CS4All team is thinking deeply about how we can support educators during this time. To help us understand your concerns and needs, please take a couple of minutes to complete this form. Your feedback will be essential to the work we do for you during this time.
All NYC schools are encouraged to participate in Computer Science Education Week (CSEdWeek) from December 7-13, 2020. CSEdWeek is a great opportunity for every student to try computer science (CS)! Join the growing number of schools and educators in NYC bringing computer science to their students by hosting an Hour of Code or other CS community event! See below for resources and tips!
Make a pledge today to host an event and let us know what you are doing for CSEdWeek!
Computer Science Education Week (CSEdWeek) is an annual, nationwide event that started in 2009 to raise awareness about the need for computer science education for all learners and highlight its importance in 21st-century careers. This year it’s celebrated the week of December 9.
Why host a CSEdWeek event?
Because it’s fun AND easy to do! Hosting an event can spark student interest in computer science, demonstrate how engaging the content can be, and help schools determine how to start making computer science part of their students’ education.
Is training provided?
Yes! Teachers who have not previously participated in CS4All training can use this registration link to sign up for one hour-long session to get ideas to help them plan an event. Teachers should complete the registration form by October 23rd, 2020.
How do I plan an event?
Activities, event guides, posters, and so much more can be found right here: 2020 Folder— Resources include:
