Event Description

CS4HS Google Open Call 

Google announced an open call for professional development (PD) of high school teachers of computer science.

How does it work?

PD practitioners apply for an annual CS4HS award.

Funding Criteria

You must be affiliated with a research institution, university and/or an educational nonprofit such as a professional development organization, school district or a local office of education.

Funded 2017 CS4HS applications will be measured as follows:

  • Your professional development opportunity must include a plan for a year-round community of practice (COP) work that supports ongoing PD and advocacy for Computer Science.
  • Your professional development opportunity must develop high school teacher's or student's understanding of computer science and contain computer science content that will be relevant in the classroom.
  • Your professional development opportunity must be in the form of either a teacher training workshop or teacher and student training workshops, an online course (MOOC) or a teacher resource project.
  • Previous applicants are welcome to apply, if adding a new dimension to former projects or launching a new computer science project.

Award Allocation

Institutions may receive support of up to $15,000. Additional funding is available for projects with regional reach and the potential to scale nationally. This can be through MOOCs or collaborating with other organisations. For funded projects, we appreciate receiving news about your project so we can measure the impact of this program.

What is CS4HS?

CS4HS funding enables computer science (CS) education experts to provide exemplary CS professional development for teachers. The funding focuses on three major growth areas for teacher PD in CS: 1. Facilitating the development and delivery of content that increases teachers' knowledge of computer science and computational thinking; 2. Allowing providers to customize learning content to meet local needs and the sharing of best practices for engaging all students; and 3. Addressing the building of communities of practice that continue to support teacher learning throughout the school year.
