L.A. Unified teachers back-to-school for lessons in coding
8/4/2017, 8:30 AM
WHAT: More than 100 teachers from L.A. Unified’s Local Districts Central, East and South are back in school for a two-day workshop. “Apple Everyone Can Code” helps teachers with coding and building. This instruction also equips them to help students learn how to design a program and write code.
Computing occupations are among the highest-paying jobs. Yet, very few students know how to program or code. With guidance from these teachers, more L.A. Unified students may be encouraged to pursue degrees in computer science. In addition, more girls and more minority students, including Latinos and African-Americans, will be exposed to these skills.
WHO: Host, Local District Central, which has the largest concentration of Latino students who are learning English, is partnering with Apple to address the critical need for more students who are interested in computer science.
Latina teachers who advocate for girls to master these skills, will be available for interviews.
WHEN: Thurs. and Fri., August 3-4, 8:30a.m. – 3:30p.m.
WHERE: Franklin High School
820 N. Avenue 54
