In collaboration with the Georgia Department of Education, Computer Science Teachers Association (CSTA), and CS4GA, the Constellations Center for Equity in Computing at Georgia Tech (Constellations) is hosting the inaugural Constellations Virtual Computer Science Professional Development Summit.
The conference will virtually take place June 15-17, 2020 and is open to educators at all levels. For full session descriptions, please visit www.constellationspd.cc.gatech.edu
In light of recent events that have exposed racial injustices, we join the calls for justice to end the structural racism that continues to plague communities all across our nation. We believe we must push forward together for change. We continue to aim toward a more just America and equitable opportunities within the American education system. Our goals for the summit remain the same -- to support and care for our teachers in the best way possible and build a compassionate and unified community of educators who are the central figures for the youth of our nation.
With increased sensitivity and concerns due to the current global pandemic and calls for justice, our objective is to simply move forward together as one and continue supporting our educators with quality opportunities for professional growth. The summit aims to:
- Provide support and resources for educators whether they are experienced or new to computing
- Provide information and resources for educators to begin or strengthen their computer science program.
Please note that some sessions will feature physical computing devices. You may attend those sessions with or without the computing device. If you have the featured device you will be able to follow along and learn how to use and program the device. Instructions for how to purchase those items can be found here.
We recommend purchasing the items by June 1 to allow time for shipping.
This event is organized by The Constellations Center for Equity in Computing at Georgia Tech, Georgia Department of Education, Computer Science Teachers Association (CSTA), and CS4GA.
