We are excited to announce that Shiloh Secondary teacher, Ed Bowerman has been accepted into the Computer Science Professional Development Summer Program with the National Institute of Sciences and Exploring Computer Science! Mr. Bowerman will spend a week at Colorado School of Mines for the Computer Science Professional Development Program with funding provided by Infosys Foundation. He is honored to have been selected, and Shiloh Administration believes this is a great opportunity to boost our Computer Science program.

Goals of the Computer Science Professional Development Program:

  • To introduce and reinforce conceptual structure of ECS by highlighting the intersection of computer science knowledge, computational practices, and an engaging pedagogy.
  • To make explicit the modeling of an engaging pedagogy so that teachers can make explicit to their students the intersection of computer science knowledge and computational practices.
  • To highlight the role of teacher professionals as those who are reflective in their own thinking about ECS classroom teaching practices.
  • To help teachers consider how formative and summative evaluations of student learning can take place using a variety of assessment strategies.
  • To deepen discussions about equity in the classroom to consider how issues of access, instructional practices, assessment, and culturally relevant curriculum all have the ability to impact participation.
  • Sustain and expand a teacher professional community that can provide support, guidance, and mentorship for one another.

Thank you, Mr. Bowerman for representing Shiloh this summer! We are excited for you and our Computer Science Program!
