Georgia teachers receive training via TCS’ computational thinking program 13/06/2018 09:14

Tata Consultancy Services, (TCS), the leading provider of digital education content and professional development for K-12 classrooms, on Tuesday announced the South Georgia launch of their Ignite My Future in School initiative, in collaboration with Georgia Public Broadcasting.

TCS and Discovery Education Are Offering “Ignite My Future in School” to Cultivate Career Readiness in Students and Provide World-Class Professional Development to Educators in Southern Georgia.

Teachers from multiple school districts will receive professional development, educational resources and year-round support to integrate computational thinking into core subjects such as math, sciences, arts, and social studies. In turn, students will learn foundational skills for 21st century careers – across industries – through this trans disciplinary approach.

In addition to the aforementioned districts, educators from Marietta City Schools, Berrien, Madison County, Wilcox, and Thomas County will have the opportunity to apply computational thinking through hands on training modules during the Day of Discovery at South Georgia Technical College in Cordele, GA.

Ignite My Future in School aspires to bridge the talent gap by developing relevant skills for 21st century job opportunities in the new digital economy. “Educators play the pivotal role of preparing young people for their future, and for careers that have not yet been invented. Through Ignite My Future in School they can provide foundational skills that help build relevance and resilience in a Business 4.0 era,” said Balaji Ganapathy, Head of Workforce Effectiveness, TCS.

Schools within these districts have the unique opportunity of learning and applying computational thinking through an annual free day of professional development for educators. Also, TCS and Discovery Education have launched the digital platform, IgniteMyFutureInSchool.org to provide teachers nationwide with an exclusive, cost-free, virtual professional development experience that includes lesson plans, curriculum resources, eLearning courses, and webinars. These resources are aligned to national standards, as well as the recently launched K-12 Computer Science Framework.

On a National level, Ignite My Future in School has a goal of engaging 20,000 teachers and one million U.S. students by 2021. As a first step towards this objective, TCS and Discovery Education partnered with U.S. school systems in Metropolitan Washington D.C, Georgia, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Texas, and Wisconsin as early adopters of this transdisciplinary approach. Since September 2017, the program has engaged over 3,300 educators from every state and impacted more than 185,000 students.
