Take the CSed Week Pledge
CSed Week will be December 5-11 this year — to encompass Grace Hopper’s birthday, and as defined by an act of Congress. The new website will be rolling out on November 29, and will encourage students, teachers, industry, and university folks to pledge to engage in some activity to promote computer science education. I’m on the Steering Committee for the effort, representing ACM and SIGCSE.
When the new website opens, we’d love for their to be a long list of people already pledging to do useful and interesting things during CSed Week. Please do visit the pledge pages and sign up to do something, from simply blogging on CSed Week, to speaking to a group of high school students about CS Ed, to working with groups of undergraduates to visit a bunch of elementary schools and give demos of Alice and Kodu. Invite others to pledge, as well, to show that the CS education community is active and cares about promoting computing education.
