Congratulations to a host of excellent digital technology educators who have won Google funding for 2017. Google has run Computer Science for High Schools (CS4HS) programs in Australia and New Zealand since 2011, with more than 9,000 teachers trained.
I believe in a first for New Zealand, the teachers association NZACDITT (New Zealand Association for Computing, Digital and Information Technology Teachers) has won funding. This is excellent news for our subject, and should see great things being announced later this year. Other recipients include Auckland University of Technology, University of Canterbury – Primary & Secondary Workshops, and Victoria University of Wellington.
