More than 150 educators and tech leaders attend CS K12 Forum
Top computer science and tech industry leaders came together Nov. 15 to share ideas on using the new “K-12 Computer Science Framework” to guide CS curriculum in schools. The forum at Microsoft in Mountain View was one of the first public discussions about the Framework that included educators, business leaders and state-level administrators. Panelists strongly urged that students as young as kindergarten be exposed to computer science curriculum that is incorporated across all subjects in the classroom. Only 10% of 7th to 12th graders in the state have been exposed to a computer class.
