  • TCS Students Get Exposed to the field of Computer Science
     

    By: Shena N. Noble, Taliaferro County School CTAE Director

     

    With all the technological advances and everything becoming so dependent on technology in our society today, the field of Computer Science is exploding. According to code.org there are currently 493, 613 available computing jobs nationwide making these jobs the number one source of new wages in the United States. Recently there was an article on money.cnn.com which talked about how many students in rural America are not prepared for the many computing job opportunities. According to the article this is because they are less likely than their city peers to gain access to computer science training. Fortunately this is not the case at Taliaferro County School thanks to the CTAE (Career Technical and Agricultural Education) course offerings. Students in grades 6-8 take Business and Computer Science as a Connections course each year. In this course they learn how to use computers more effectively and are exposed to careers in the Business and Computer Science fields. High school students also have the opportunity to take Business and Technology courses as an elective.

    In addition to TCS’s course offerings students have the opportunity to learn about computer science through other special programs hosted by the CTAE department. Recently 4th, 5th, 7th grade and high school students participated in Hour of Code 2016. Hour of Code is a global initiative in which students all over the world spend at least one hour during a designated week in December learning about the basics of coding and computer science. This year Hour of Code took place during the week of December 5th -December 11th and TCS students spent at least one hour completing tutorials and writing basic computer program.  Most students thoroughly enjoyed learning how to code and were proud of their accomplishments.

    While all TCS students may not pursue a career in computer science upon graduating, it certainly will not be because they were not aware of the opportunities or were not exposed to the field, the TCS CTAE department will make sure of this.
