Google has opened applications for the Computer Science educators funding program for 2018. It is open to school districts, schools, and other education nonprofits around Africa. This covers primary schools all the way to university levels. I know some schools you know may benefit.
Over the past 10 years, Google’s programme for the professional development (PD) of Computer Science (CS) educators (formerly known as CS4HS) has funded close to $13 million in grants supporting teacher PD in CS education globally. In Africa, 61 universities and nonprofits dedicated to growing the confidence and skillset of new and future CS educators have received grants that have impacted 5,000 educators from more than 15 countries.
We’re excited to announce our funding cycle is open to school districts, universities, and other education nonprofits around the world for the 2018-2019 school year. Historically, Google’s CS educator PD grants have aimed to help secondary school teachers gain confidence to integrate CS and computational thinking (CT) into their classrooms. To celebrate the tenth anniversary of CS PD funding, we’re excited to announce that the programme will expand to include applications from PD providers for primary school and pre-service teacher education in Africa for the 2018 grant year.
