AdvanceKentucky is a Code.org Professional Learning Partner offering Code.org Professional Learning Programs and the designated provider of Code.org Professional Learning Programs in Kentucky. AdvanceKentucky has joined a nationwide network of Professional Learning Partners to support efforts to expand access to computer science in K-12 schools. We will provide quality professional development to educators in Kentucky through local district partnerships and by building a positive local computer science educator community.
AdvanceKentucky will provide quality professional development to teachers in Kentucky for the following Code.org curricula:
Code.org’s Computer Science Principles (CSP) is an introductory Advanced Placement (AP®) course designed to broaden participation in computer science. Code.org is recognized by the College Board as an endorsed provider of AP® CSP curriculum and professional development. The course has been reviewed by the College Board and is pre-approved to pass the course audit process. Our endorsed professional development is held to (and goes beyond) the standards of AP® Summer Institutes. The official AP® exam launches this 2016-17 school year.
Computer Science Discoveries (CS Discoveries) is an introductory computer science course that empowers students to create authentic artifacts and engage with computer science as a medium for creativity, communication, problem solving, and fun. The CS Discoveries curriculum was built for students in grades 7-9, so teachers can implement in either middle school or high school classrooms.
For both courses, teachers will participate in a 5-day professional development workshop in the summer of 2017 and four days of professional development throughout the school year 2017-2018.
Any teachers, schools, or districts wanting more information about the program and application should contact Monique Morton, Senior Content Director at firstname.lastname@example.org.
