My new job: Callysto Ambassador

Since I haven't written a blog post in a while, perhaps I can talk briefly about my new job. Funding has been officially announced for PIMS and Cybera's CanCode project entitled "Callysto: Building Tomorrow's Digital Leaders". I'm taking a year off from teaching to help with resource development and teacher training for the Callysto project.

Callysto aims to foster computational thinking and data science skills in students and for teachers. There are some curriculum-related notebooks, a Jupyter Hub, online courses (being developed), supports for teacher to develop notebooks, as well as opportunities to offer (call for proposals coming soon) or attend professional learning activities, or participate in educational research.

Everything through the Callysto project is available for free (gratis and libre).

Let us know if you're interested.
