Computer Science Education Week

This week — December 7 to December 12 — is “Computer Science Education Week”. This week recognizes the central role that computing plays in today’s society and the need to introduce and expose students to opportunities available in learning and practicing Computer Science.

From the official ACM press release:

Quote:
CSEdWeek is a joint effort led by ACM with the cooperation and deep involvement of the Computer Science Teachers Association, the Computing Research Association, the National Center for Women & Information Technology, the Anita Borg Institute, the National Science Foundation, Google, Inc., Intel, and Microsoft. The U.S. House of Representatives passed the resolution creating CSEdWeek, which was introduced by Congressmen Vernon Ehlers (R-MI) and Jared Polis (D-CO).

Algorithm Visualizations can be invaluable in teaching fundamental concepts of computing to students at all levels. We encourage you to browse our catalog for visualizations to use in your teachings, or to discuss AVs and all things related to CS education in the forums. You can also find a great collection of curriculum guides and other education resources at the CSEdWeek central hub, http://www.csedweek.org/.
