TEALS (Technology Education and Literacy in Schools) helps high schools throughout the US build and grow sustainable computer science programs.
The Seattle Times recently posted a story and video regarding the TEALS program at work in Manson Schools, which you can view here – Innovative TEALS program fills gaps in computer science education.
The video is provided by Microsoft Philanthropies and features Manson Superintendent Matt Charlton, several students at Manson High School, and the community of Manson. You don’t want to miss viewing it.
TEALS pairs trained computer science professionals from across the technology industry with classroom teachers to team-teach computer science. Industry volunteers and partner teachers create a ripple effect, impacting the students they teach, and the many students who will study CS in the future.
The TEALS programs was started in 2009 by Microsoft employee Kevin Wang, who developed and ran the program in his spare time, and is supported by Microsoft Philanthropies.
