Operation Reboot: Georgia Tech Looks To Shift Unemployed IT Pros into Teaching Careers — THE Journal

The AP picked up a story about Barbara’s new Operation Reboot project, and it’s popping up in lots of places now: Georgia Tech Looks To Shift Unemployed IT Pros into Teaching Careers — THE Journal.

The particularly brilliant part of Barbara’s plan, which isn’t getting picked up in the stories very well, is that she’s putting the unemployed IT workers into the classroom as soon as possible to team-teach with a business teacher who wants to learn how to be a computing teacher.  Both team teachers want to become computing teachers: One knows IT and wants to learn how to be a teacher, and the other is a teacher who wants to learn IT.  The result isn’t just 30 new high school CS teachers.  It’s 60 well-trained teachers. Very cool.
