Nextech Educator Book Studies


Computer science is a new field for many teachers, and even for those teachers where it isn’t a new discipline, often teachers need a reason to focus and reflect on their own CS teaching strategies and CS teaching pedagogy.  Nextech will offer two book studies per year (one in the fall and one in the spring) focused on continuing education for teachers on effective computer science teaching practices. Each individual book study will meet virtually two times with asynchronous work in between meetings to keep the group on track and engaged.

Eligibility and Pre-Requisites

This workshop is intended for any/all K-12 Teachers, Computer Science Teachers, Media/Library Specialists and Resource/Tech Teachers interested in diving deeper into computer science books and increasing their pedagogy. For the fall meeting, please plan on reading the Foreword and Preface prior to the first meeting.
