As the old saying goes, “a student is only as good as their teacher.” When the adage is applied to programming, computer science teachers need to be on top of their game — now more than ever.
Throughout the summer, Delaware students have been polishing their STEM skills. Now, it’s time for teachers to catch up.
As reported over the weekend by Delaware Public Media, approximately 50 STEM educators gathered at Delaware State University for a “crash course” training session in HTML.
The program, called Exploring CS, is a national organization designed by UCLA and funded by the National Science Foundation. Teachers were trained in the curriculum they will be teaching this coming school year, consisting mainly of hands-on activities. One example is a coding “mad lib” where students will design websites on posterboard with HTML tags.
