These workshops were offered during the 2023 Summer of CS:

Approximately 600-700 California classroom educators, paraprofessionals, counselors, and administrators from 56 counties participated in Summer of CS workshops in June and July 2023. Most workshops were 3-day or 5-day workshops, with some exceptions. 

Since this is a yearlong professional development opportunity, those who participated in the 2023 Summer of CS not only got free access to any Summer of CS workshop they chose, they also are guaranteed additional academic year workshops of just-in-time support where they will meet virtually after school with their workshop provider to reinforce, reflect, and extend their learning. 

These ongoing learning opportunity meetings will be daily during the weeks listed below. Workshop time will be a mix of synchronous and asynchronous time. Synchronous time will be specified by the 2023 Summer of CS workshop Facilitators. Participants will be paid a $175 incentive for every 6 hours of ongoing professional learning.

Also included are three virtual Community of Practice gatherings, in collaboration with the Computer Science Teachers Association (CSTA). These are optional and scheduled from 4-5:30pm where participants will connect with fellow educators across California:

Participants will be paid a $50 stipend for each of these meetings for active participation. Go to the CSTA website for more information.

In addition to the academic year workshops listed above, the hope is that teachers and paraprofessionals who participate in Summer of CS workshops will deliver 30/50/75 hours of CS instruction, depending on grade level, to students during the 2023-2024 school year. 

This delivery could include integrated lessons, standalone units of instruction, after-school clubs and activities, and/or other creative approaches.  The workshop you choose to participate in this summer will provide you with ample content and strategies for instruction. The optional quarterly Community of Practice gatherings during 2023-2024 (listed above) will provide you with opportunities to collaborate with other K-12 teachers across the state on the topic of implementation. The grant that funds the Summer of CS asks for participating teachers to acknowledge an intent to deliver the instruction.  The content of the Summer of CS workshops provided the resources and support to help you try to do 30/50/75 hours in the first school year.
