INTEREDU™ Computer Science Track

The training programs in this track are aimed at familiarizing computer science teachers in primary schools with the knowledge and skills needed to bring their students up to the level of the targeted educational outcomes in the curriculum. The training programs are based on best practices and standards in international education worldwide on which teacher performance assessment is conducted, such as Praxis III, classroom performance assessment and science-teaching competencies in KSA, recent theories in science teaching via an integrated system for various age groups such as STEM, 21st century skills, and the CCSS of many international schools that include various international accredited tests and adopted curricula.

The programs in this track cover the role that computer science teachers play in spreading the safe use of technology and integrating technology in learning and teaching in the school.
