What are the skills that a public school Computer Science teacher should possess?
Louis Frankel May 15, 2017
I am a middle school English Language Arts and Computer Science teacher in Brooklyn. The New York City Department Of Education has been trying to transition some of its teachers into teaching CS, as the official pathways into the classroom for industry professionals are scant. There are lots of teachers who want to take this opportunity, but the training options are often limited to companies who simply explain how to use their platforms (Code.org, Codesters, etc). It's not a bad deal, but I think I can do better.
I want to teach other teachers how to teach children how to code. What do you think teachers should be teaching, and what do you think children should be learning?
