Invite for CTiS2023 Hybrid Conference

CSpathshala proudly announces the Fifth Annual Conference on Computational Thinking in Schools, CTiS2023 on 7 and 8 July, 2023 at IISER, Pune, and hosted by City Pride School, Pune, and SCTR’s PICT ACM Student Chapter (PASC) . The conference will address the theme "Enhancing Teacher Preparation for Integrating Computational Thinking."  It will be held in hybrid format with in-person participation encouraged to the extent possible

We are privileged to have the Keynote Address by Tim Bell, University of Canterbury, New Zealand on "Teaching Computer Science – Unplugged." We also have Juraj Hromkovic & Regula Lacher, ETH Zurich, Switzerland for the Invited Talk on "The Three Roots of Computer Science and a Workshop Session by Teaching CT From Kindergarten to High School in a Spiral Curriculum." We have teacher presentations across various thematic areas from 10 states in India and also poster presentations and exhibits of CT unplugged activities and games.

The CTiS (Computational Thinking in Schools) Conference is an annual event organised by ACM India and the CSpathshala community. It aims to bring together teachers, educators and researchers to discuss issues of curriculum, pedagogy, policy and implementation, related to bringing computational thinking to schools.

CSpathshala is an ACM India initiative to bring a modern computing curriculum to Indian schools. In the National Education Policy 2020 and in many countries across the world, Computational Thinking (CT) has been identified as one of the essential skills to be developed in children during the school years. It advances the notion that the Mathematics and Science behind Computer Science go far beyond the simple ability to use computers and programming languages, and can be taught and discussed in schools even without the use of computers.
