2022 Counselor 4 Computing at the PA Computer Science for All Summit – Jun 21-22

Posted by Pennsylvania Training and Technical Assistance Network on May 24, 2022

The Pennsylvania Department of Education, NCWIT Counselors 4 Computers and Pennsylvania School Counselors Association will host workshops centered around “Advising for 21st Century Careers and Tech Tools”, and “Technology Leadership Institute”. The workshops have three major goals. First, to expand school counselors’ understanding of computing related careers to better equip our students with the knowledge and skills to integrate their passions in the rapidly changing labor market. Second, to expand school counselors’ personal technology toolbox to find ways to make our practices more efficient and sustainable. Lastly, to prepare counselors for integration into the K-12 School Guidance Plan following the ASCA national model and grant writing.  Counselors will gain a deeper understanding of current and emerging topics of career education as integrated with the CEWs, career portfolios, and the new world of work. Counselors will engage in a hands-on activity utilizing emerging technology that can be used in your CSCP.

The Leadership Institute will explore how to foster design-based thinking, exploring labor trends in digital technology, encourage women and underrepresented students in computing careers, & how computing careers can help students rise out of poverty. Join us to learn how to advocate for more Computer Science in your own district.
