We want to empower you, educators across Canada, to confidently teach computer science in your classroom or extracurricular program! We’re excited to bring you our third annual TeacherCon, a free multi-day conference experience for educators in the Canadian school system. Since 2018, TeacherCon has provided 950+ educators with lesson plans, guidelines and fun ways to introduce coding into the classroom.JOIN US
During the week of August 10th-14th (English) and September 21st-24th (French), you will be able to customize your own virtual conference experience!
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 (launching at the end of July!).
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.
If you’re teaching computer science for the first time, you’re in luck! We have some amazing resources to help you continue your learning journey and prepare you to teach your students.
Computer science is an important life skill but how does it fit into your curriculum? We can help! Our very first session will walk you through how to use the Framework in your class.
You can now sign up for the full TeacherCon experience! This includes an introduction to the K-12 Computer Science Education Framework, tool-specific training workshops and daily keynote speakers:
You must be signed up for the full TeacherCon experience to register for tool-specific training workshops happening in August.
