Share your excitement and enthusiasm for computer science by being a lead teacher within your district. This five day (30 hours) professional development is mandatory for educators interested in the Arkansas Department of Education K-8 Lead Teacher Training and Stipend program. Spots will be filled on a first come first serve basis. Participants will not be eligible for any stipends unless they complete all five days.
Participants will receive training on the K-8 computer science embedded standards, methods, materials, and best practices on how to share this knowledge with other K-8 educators working to embed the computer science standards across other content areas. Specifics regarding the available stipends and requirements necessary to be eligible for the stipends can be found at http://adecm.arkansas.gov/ViewApprovedMemo.aspx?Id=3443. Each Arkansas educator is only eligible for this stipend program once.
