The Div has partnered with Code.org to bring nationally recognized K-12 curriculum and professional development to classrooms in Oklahoma. This program supports teachers with diverse backgrounds. Whether new to teaching computer science or those with several years experience, the program promotes growth in teaching practice and provides space to become comfortable with the curriculum and associated teaching strategies. 

Elementary educators can sign up now for free 1-day workshops throughout the year, with additional dates being added soon. Starting January 16, middle school and high school educators can apply for a free one-year training program that kicks off in summer 2018. The only requirement is a commitment to implement the course. Teachers can sign up here to receive an email notification when applications open. For more information on each program visit thediv.org
