University of Arkansas researchers to lead effort to train teachers in computer science
from University of Arkansas
Computer science and engineering researchers at the University of Arkansas will use a nearly $1 million grant from the National Science Foundation to lead an interdisciplinary team of educators who will train and certify Arkansas school teachers in computer science education. Over the next three years, Training Arkansas Computing Teachers, or TACT, will prepare 50 Arkansas teachers for licensure to teach the new advanced placement computer science principles course, introducing high school students to basic computer programming and applications. The program's goal is to increase student awareness and interest in computer-related professions.
