CSTA resources for CSed Week

CSTA just shared this with its members, some great resources for CSed Week:

CSEdWeek 2010 is a call to action to raise awareness of computer science education and computing careers among students, educators, and the public. CSEdWeek (December 5-11, 2010) has been endorsed by Congress in recognition of Admiral Grace Murray Hopper’s birthday, December 9, 1906, and her extraordinary contributions to the field of Computer Science.

CSTA is delighted to announce its new CS Ed Week resource, now available on the CSTA website at:

As part of their commitment to support CS Ed Week (Dec. 5-11th) activities, the Donald Bren School of Information & Computer Sciences at the University of California, Irvine and CSTA have created a series of announcements that schools and teachers can use for morning announcements or in the classroom. These audio and video files are intended to inform and engage students and to help them understand the many opportunities computer science provides.

Audio Announcement: Listen live or download and play for morning announcements!
This 45-second audio announcement by a high school senior points to a broad spectrum of career opportunities and encourages students to celebrate Computer Science Education Week.

Videos: Watch live or download and play for announcements or in the classroom!
This series of five two-minute videos celebrates the contributions that computer science makes in four fields and encourages students to pursue computer science as an educational pathway and a career. They cover entertainment, the environment, communications, medicine, and empowerment.
