20th ACM Annual Conference: Innovation and Technology in Computer Science Education

The conference consists of keynote lectures, paper sessions, panels, working groups, tips and much more. Working groups will discuss various issues such as computer science competencies for 21st century high school and undergraduate students or approaches to global software engineering courses. The main conference starts on Monday 6 July, 2015 and ends on Wednesday 8 July, 2015.

 

Computer science is a powerful force for making a positive difference in the world, but has struggled to find its way into the classroom. During the ITiCSE 2015 conference, one of the seven working groups, will especially focus on discussing and framing computer science competencies for 21st century high school and undergraduate students.

In order to improve the way students are taught, WG5 aims to identify what to assess, how to assess it and produce a question bank suitable also for visual on-line assessment tools. This is especially important to leverage on the appeal that mobile gaming and visual programming environments have on the youngsters.

The conference will begin with the Working Groups, which start their sessions on 4 July, and will continue working until Wednesday 8 July, 2015. ITiCSE 2015 will take place in Vilnius, Lithuania, hosted by Vilnius University. The ACM Special Interest Group on Computer Science Education (SIGCSE) is sponsoring the event.
