Jake Baskin TALKS About Making #CSforAll a Reality
Software and computers are everywhere, revolutionizing every field around us. But the majority of schools don't teach computer science. Code.org believes every student should have the opportunity to shape the 21st-century and wants to turn this problem around. Code.org has already helped over 100 million students try computer science for the first time with one Hour of Code, partnered with 70+ school districts to bring courses to schools, released a free online learning platform with 10% of students in K-8 US schools enrolled. We've helped change policy in 16 states to better support computer science. This is just the beginning of a bold vision to bring this foundational field to every K-12 public school by 2020.

Breakout Session: K-12 CS In Action
Experience Code.org's curriculum and professional development first hand in this interactive deep dive into our CS Principles curriculum and professional development. Participants will explore a sample of lessons as students would, and then see how teachers who may not have a CS background are prepared to teach the content in an inquiry and equity focused classroom. Participants will also learn more about the Code.org district partnership program, and start building a plan to introduce or strengthen computer science programs within their classrooms, schools and districts.
 
About Jake Baskin
Jake Baskin is Code.org's Director of District Management, where he leads an outreach team that has helped bring computer science to over 100 school districts nationwide, including the country's 7 largest. In this role, he works closely with district leadership to craft a sustainable plan to bring computer science to students, with a focus on reaching traditionally underrepresented groups in computing. He has also worked with Code.org's curriculum writing teams on early drafts of the CS Principles curriculum.Prior to working with Code.org Jake was the Computer Science Department Chair at Lindblom Math and Science Academy in Chicago's West Englewood neighborhood, where he built a pathway of computer science courses and more than doubled enrollment by young women in computer science courses. He also has led professional development for the Exploring Computer Science course for teachers across the country. Before entering the classroom Jake studied computer science at Swarthmore College, with a focus on distributed computing (and poetry).
