Computer Science Education Week is Here!

We are now in the middle of Computer Science Education Week 2010 (December 5 to 11, 2010). What plans to you have to involve your school in this historic event?

If you are still looking for some ideas, you might check out the Computer Science Education Week web site at:

http://www.csedweek.org/

This web site is host to a collection of resources for you to use in promoting computer science education within your school community.

And if you are planning an event, be sure to join educators, students and supporters all over the world and take the pledge.

nother great idea for those schools with live announcement programs is CSTA's CS Ed Week videos. These videos can be found on the CSTA web site at:

http://csta.acm.org/Advocacy_Outreach/sub/CSEdWeek.html

The videos are great two minute commercials to promote CS Education to your students. They can be downloaded in QuickTime or Windows Media Player versions for use with in-house video productions and broadcast out to the entire school. The set of five videos were produced by the University of California Irvine (UCI) for CSTA. CSTA would like to thank Debra Richardson, Bobby Farmer and the students of UCI for their great work on this project.

So what other ideas do you have on promoting CS Education in your school that you could share here with others?
