Code.org and ISTE partner on professional learning and more

Today, we’re excited to announce a new partnership with the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE). The partnership gives teachers additional professional learning opportunities in computer science (CS) beyond our own programs, and it also helps advance the growing movement for K-12 computer science.

Professional learning opportunities for teachers

This new partnership gives teachers an opportunity to access ISTE’s resources and community for a reduced membership fee. ISTE has extensive Professional Learning Networks, including the ISTE CS Network for educators interested in computer science. ISTE also provides a collection of quality, on-demand professional development resources online. Hundreds of webinars and ISTE Conference & Expo recordings on coding and other edtech topics are available to explore.

Another great avenue for growth after Code.org’s programs is the Computer Science Teachers Association. CSTA has represented computer science teachers since its founding over a decade ago. It has local chapters, professional learning resources, and sets K-12 CS student learning standards, aligned to the nationally adopted K-12 CS Framework.

Collaboration on K-12 CS teacher standards

Collaborating on Advocacy

The movement for teaching computer science in K-12 has grown significantly in the past years, thanks to the passion of amazing educators who have recognized the importance of this critical subject. We’re thankful for the support of these educators, and we welcome this new partnership with ISTE to help support our teachers in their professional growth and to help advance the movement into the future.
