About TeacherCon 2020
During the week of September 21st-24th, you will be able to customize your own virtual TeacherCon experience! This experience will be taught completely in French.
This year, we’re offering new experiences for educators teaching kindergarten to grade 9, or educators teaching computer science for the first time at any grade level. By the end of the conference, you’ll know how to teach and adapt computer science into your curriculum using the new K-12 Computer Science Education Framework.

True to all of our learning experiences, we’re running beginner-friendly workshops that are social, collaborative, project-based and hands-on to help you start teaching computer science.
