Interesting Links 8 August 2016

Today is back to school for some students. Also for some teachers. I know some teachers who reported to school last week. Whoa! It’s getting close for the rest of us. Many teachers at my school were in last week to pickup new faculty laptops. Some really nice ones with Windows 10 and touch screens. Better (more performance) than my Surface. Though the Surface will still be my travel computer because is is smaller and lighter.

As it is I have started to put together some new resources for teaching various topics this school year. Some of the links below will be used by me. I hope you find some of them interesting and helpful.

Are colleges and universities really teaching courses like the new Advanced Placement Computer Science Principles course? Mark Guzdial has a list of College-level CS Principles Courses

Please take this Internet bandwidth survey to help a teacher. There vis a lot of data that that you could use in your own class BTW.

What are you doing to achieve #CSforAll? The White House wants to know

5 Free Cyber Security Courses to check out. A topic growing in importance and attracting more interest from students. has four new tools for teaching the Internet, Encryption, pixilation and data compression. They’re pretty cool and I plan to use several of them this year.
