Presentation proposals for the WeTeach_CS Summit to be held June 5-7, 2017 in Austin, TX are now being accepted. 2016’s inaugural WeTeach_CS Summit featured 56 breakout sessions on a variety of CS and related topics. Based on the positive feedback we received, we’re hoping to offer even more sessions for 2017!
These days cloud computing is everywhere and has also become an important topic in CS classrooms, especially in higher education. Now, University faculty in the United States can request free credits for their students to use during computer science courses in the 2016-17 academic year. Along with all the tools that are offered by GCP, the education grant program means that students can use it without providing a credit card for verification. Faculty who receive a grant, and the approval wait time has recently shrunk from weeks to days, will be invited to join a Google+ group of 150 professors who are also using GCP. It’s also possible for faculty and staff to demo GCP, by requesting a “zero student” course.
