CSTA National Standards and their Impact on the Future of K-12 Computer Education

  • The Computer Science Teachers Association (CSTA), a membership organization that supports and promotes the teaching of computer science and other computing disciplines, recently revised the Model Curriculum for K-12 Computer Science with a focus on establishing National K-12 Computer Science Education Standards. The intent of the document is to provide teachers, schools, districts, states, and governing bodies with a framework upon which to enhance and facilitate computer education in K-12 schools.

    The panel will discuss how the revised standards will impact K-12 education and discuss the ways in which educators at all levels (K through College) can help to strengthen computer studies programs in our nations schools. The panel will present information about the revised Model, the role of the CSTA, and the reality of K-12 computer education today. Time will be allotted for discussion and sharing of ideas for making K-12 computer education a reality for all students.

    This panel will bring three speakers who are active members of the CSTA, two of which have contributed as authors on the Standards project. The format is an educational Panel aimed at informing attendees of the challenges and opportunities that the proposed curriculum framework will provide.
