CEISMC and Georgia Tech-Savannah have been providing Code.org’s computer science fundamentals professional development training, which is for K-5 teachers, for the past two years. Thanks to funding support from Code.org, teachers who wanted to participate have been able to enjoy the one- or two-day workshops while paying little to nothing out of pocket. However, when COVID-19 pushed all programs online, there was uncertainty if the trainings would meet their minimum registrations, a requirement to receive funding. In preparation, they created a virtual format that still provided a high-quality experience while allowing teachers the flexibility needed to adjust to new scheduling demands and educational platforms.
