Description:

The website for the Computer Science Teachers Association is sprinkled with computer science word play, but their mission remains quite serious: "The Computer Science Teachers Association is a membership organization that supports and promotes the teaching of computer science and other computing disciplines." For instance, visitors can read an article under "Big News!" on the homepage titled "Why is K-12 CS Education Fading as Digital Economy Grows?" which highlights how much K-12 education in the US has fallen behind in terms of teaching computer science. The article states that "roughly two-thirds the country have few computer science education standards for secondary school education, and most states treat high school computer science courses as simply an elective." Visitors can download the full report for free, which includes state-by-state standards report cards. The "Get Connected!" section of the website can be found on the menu on the left-hand side of any page, and it provides visitors with links to podcasts, videos, their newsletter and blog.
