Custom Professional Development

We Meet You Where You Are

Our Custom Professional Development is available to help support your building’s or district’s computer science implementation. We are happy to help your teachers go deeper into computer science implementation, support creating a customized pathway, or integrate computer science into other content areas. Our staff will work with you to understand your current computer science curriculum, help to determine the sort of support you are looking for, and to create a tailored PD plan that fits your unique situation.

Funding through Iowa’s Computer Science Professional Development Incentive Fund can also be used for all of our computer science professional development options. Please reach out to NewBoCo through the button below or your local AEA representative to learn more.

Program Examples

Presenting to Marshalltown, Fort Madison, and Osage teachers about the “why” of computer science, what it is, and why it is important for all students in Iowa

Partnered with Great Prairie AEA to provide three workshops throughout the year around K–8 computer science, integration examples with core content areas, and implementation paths for districts to be aware of

Supported Fort Madison’s Computer Science Cohort to deepen their connections to core content areas and create an onboarding plan for training more teachers on computer science education and integration

Worked with grade bands in Osage to make connections to core content areas and learn and practice ways to expand engagement through lessons and student projects already happening throughout the year

Looking for specific or tailored computer science professional development?
