Pursuing potential computer science course option
Exciting news! We met with Ryan Wise, Dean of Drake School of Education today and Drake is willing to partner with PLAEA to offer 3 computer science courses starting this spring/summer. General information on the courses in included in the download.
PLAEA will apply for the CSPDIF Partnership Grant, and if awarded, would be able to cover the costs of the 3 courses allowing your teachers to receive training and Drake credit (either free or at a very reduced cost based on the grant funding).
We believe that sharing an approximate number of interested teachers in the grant application will strengthen our chances. We will include this announcement in an upcoming Educator Connection AND would appreciate it if you would forward to applicable staff in your district. If teachers have questions, they may contact Torrey Proctor (firstname.lastname@example.org).
*Drake is working on, but can not promise, all 15 hours for a CS endorsement available in the future in the PLAEA area. At this time, the endorsement isn't required.
