Intro Text

CYBER.ORG will be leading a workshop at The WeTeach_CS Summit 2021.  In this session participants can expect to learn about Cybersecurity and Digital Citizenship, Curricular Resources and Professional Development.

More About This Event:

The WeTeach_CS Summit is a 2-day VIRTUAL event which educates, empowers, and inspires K-12 CS teachers, advocates, administrators, professional development providers, university instructors, and policy-makers to advance the goal of CS for all in Texas and beyond. Approximately 400 CS champions will be in attendance.

VIRTUAL PLATFORM: The CS Summit will be hosted in Gather Town.

Gather Town is a video-calling space that lets multiple people hold separate conversations in parallel, walking in and out of those conversations just as easily as they would in real life. We strongly encourage you to try out Gather Town ahead of the summit so that you have a feel for how the platform works. To give it a test run, head over to the official Walkthrough and Conference demos! In addition to using Gather Town, please plan on installing Zoom for the Plenary sessions.

If you need help understanding how to use Gather Town or need to troubleshoot an issue, please checkout the following support documents:

Please note that you will need a microphone and a webcam to fully participate in the summit, and Gather Town only supports the Chrome and Firefox web browsers on desktop computers. Gather Town does not work on mobile devices or the Safari web browser.
