A model for improving secondary CS education
This paper describes how the Institute for Computing Education (ICE) at Georgia Tech is trying to improve the state of computer science education in secondary schools in Georgia. ICE is a partnership between the Georgia Department of Education and the College of Computing at Georgia Tech. The goals for this partnership are to increase the number and quality of computer science teachers and increase the number, quality, and diversity of computer science students. One specific goal is to increase the number of students taking the CS-AP course. We believe that this partnership can serve as a model for other states. Categories and Subject Descriptors K.3.2 [Computers and Education]: Computer and Information Science Education – computer science education, information systems education, curriculum General Terms Experimentation, Design. Keywords Computer Science Education, Teacher Training, Advanced Placement (AP), State and University Partnerships
