Computational Thinking & Computer Science Teaching Certificate

Objective of Computational Thinking (CT) & Computer Science (CS) Teaching Certificate Program is to give teachers recognition of teaching competence for the new revised ICT Standard Curriculum for Primary School (KSSR) and Standard Curriculum for Secondary School (KSSM) which begin implementation in 2017 for Year 1, Form 1 (Asas Sains Komputer) and Form 4 (Sains Komputer)

In future, we anticipate that teachers will become skilled in teaching and integrate  CT & CS into lesson in classes.

Certified teachers will have the following three competencies:

  • Attending 40 hours face-to-face at MYDM CPD Centre
  • Computer Science knowledge and skills, including programming skills
  • Understanding of and application of pedagogical strategies suitable for teaching CT & CS

Role of MYDM CPD CENTRE

6 universities are selected as MYDM CPD Center based on Industry’s recommendation to upskill educator’s readiness through:

  1. Computational Thinking  & Computer Science Teaching Certification program for teachers in every zone
  2. Continuous Professional Development (CPD) courses to increase teachers T&L skills in Computer Science Teaching
  3. Outreach program based on Digital Making, programming and robotics for school students
  4. Support and reference point for Digital Maker Center in each zone
