2 June 12, 2012 #NAFNext Three Challenges The computing community in the US faces three significant and interrelated challenges in maintaining a robust IT workforce 1.Underproduction 2.Underrepresentation 3.Lack of a presence in K-12 education (Jan Cuny, NSF CS10K Initiative)

19 June 12, 2012 Conclusion

20 A large majority (over 85%) of Wisconsin school districts aren't even offering their students a path into the highest growing and best paying sectors of the 21st Century American economy. MU State of the State

21 Nothing official -- not until September. Now highly likely will be funded. ~$1 million over 3 years for "Preparing the Upper Midwest for Principles of Computer Science (PUMP-CS)". Elements of CSTA Wisconsin-Dairyland chapter, Marquette, UW-La Crosse, UW- Madison and WI DPI have worked for 3 years on laying the groundwork for this. Computing Education for the 21st Century (NSF CE21) Grant News

22 Part of CS10K Program -- 10,000 more qualified CS teachers in U.S. high schools. Four prongs: Growing our professional community Strengthening our professional community Linking our professional community Broadening the CS pipeline PUMP-CS - What will it mean?

23 ~ AP CS teachers statewide Perhaps another WI teachers offering some kind of programming course (Java, C++, VB, etc.) Over 400 high schools in our state. PUMP-CS will fund tuition for 100 more teachers to be prepared for ECS or CSP over next three summers. PUMP-CS: Growing

24 Targeted to 9th and 10th grade. Broad introduction to computing concepts and computational thinking. Inquiry, Equity, Content Essential preparation for AP CSP. Can teach ECS in your area, without 405 CS endorsement. (Less than 25% programming content.) Exploring Computer Science (ECS)

25 Professional Development includes five day course in first summer. Begin teaching course in fall. Quarterly updates during academic year. Another five day session in second summer. In Los Angeles, Chicago elsewhere Need volunteers for first cohort of 20 for summer Letter of support from principal. Exploring Computer Science (ECS)

26 New methods course focused on bridging gap from teaching ECS to teaching AP CS Principles or other advanced CS courses. "Missing Link" for licensure. Support for "alternative certification paths". Two cohorts of 20 teachers in 2015 and Teaching Computer Science (TCS)

27 Online course after What can YOU do? Identify candidates Bring in other stakeholders Help to define alternative pathways to CS endorsement that maintain quality Teaching Computer Science (TCS)

28 Focus groups around state, bringing together teachers, administrators and industry representatives Identify local and regional strengths Identify and destroy barriers to moving forward Educate and recruit PUMP-CS: Linking

29 Statewide Computing Symposia in summer 2015 and 2016 Triple the size of MU Teachers, administrators, counselors, industry and policymakers Goals: o Replicate success o Institutionalize positive changes PUMP-CS: Linking
