I spent some time in California at the CSTA CS & IT Symposium last week. Great stuff to learn and a lot (though never enough) of time to talk to friends both old and new. Doug Peterson has a good review of the event (2010 CSIT Symposium) as does Hélène Martin (Computer Science Teachers Conference (CSTA CS/IT 2010)). I hope to see you at next year’s event.
From the @TheOfficialACM twitter account I found that both the ACM and CSTA are quoted in a new EdWeek piece "Schools Fall Behind in Offering Computer Science" Microsoft and Google are referenced as two companies who are championing computer science education. Personally I think more companies need to jump in and help.
Speaking of which, the new Windows Phone Developer Tools Beta Released.
Lastly I wrote a little post at the Educators Royal Treatment titled Assessment and Trust that has a little something to upset almost everyone. Please comment.
