Inaugural CSNYC Education Meetup Nov 12, 2013

Scratch, Java, Robots, Web? We're coming together to build a community of professional practice around computer science education in New York City. All invested community members are welcome.

We are working to bring in national level speakers, find fun and dynamic venues and build a space for sharing ideas and best practices in the rapidly growing world of computer science.

Join us for monthly workshops, master classes, and whatever else we can come up with. See you there, and bring friends!

    All,

    Quick update that Benjamin Solotaire, Courtney Ryan, and myself will be presenting at the Brooklyn Community Board 6 General Board Meeting this evening about our initiative to connect teach-kids-to-code programs with local Community Board 6 area schools and community groups.

    The 3 of us will have about 10 minutes and we expect that we’ll also get a couple questions from the board. If you’re interested - especially if you live in the CB6 area (tonight’s meeting is in Park Slope) - please feel free to stop by. Hard to say when we’ll be on exactly, but probably towards the latter half.

    Meeting info:
    Community Board 6 (Brooklyn) Full Board Meeting
    Time: 6:30pm tonight
    Addresses:
    John Jay Educational Campus
    237 7th Avenue, Auditorium (between 4th & 5th Streets)
    Brooklyn, NY 11215 Thanks.

    Hi all!

    I met a few of you at the event last night, but I wanted to reach out to everyone who was there.

    I'm a part of the team at Amplify hoping to ramp up our in-house usability testing for our educational tablet solutions for K-12. We're looking to vet educators across grade levels and across subjects who can come in for hour-long research sessions at our offices in Manhattan. From the enthusiasm at the event last night, I think there will be a lot of great potential participants in this group.

    It's a great chance to see what's out there on the edge of education technology, and to offer some profound insights about what works in the classroom and what doesn't. We also offer compensation for your time. If this seems like something you'd be interested in, or if you have ideas of colleagues or other resources to look into, please let me know! You can reach me at [masked].

    Thanks,
    Laura
