Stackoverflow... but for questions about how to teach CS

My high school had only one computer science teacher. When she had a problem or question, she had no where to turn. I can't imagine how isolating and stressful that must have been.

cseducators.stackexchange.com is a Stack Exchange website for computer science educators to ask questions and share successful teaching techniques. It was in private beta until this week. Now everyone can access. If it

Are you an educator looking for advice about how to integrate Git into an introductory CS class? Maybe you need to find a better analogy to help a student that doesn't understand 0-indexing? How do you convince students that well-indented code is worth the effort? What's a good emergency lesson plan you can substitute if the computers are down?

These are the kind of questions that computer science educators have and they're getting help right now at cseducators.stackexchange.com! If you are an educator, check it out. If you aren't, please consider helping answer their questions.

Most CS education goes towards hardware and software purchases, leaving educators very little support to help them be better teachers. I hope that CSEducators helps to fill that gap.

I hope the traffic to this site is enough that the site graduates from Beta to become a real site. This could be very powerful.

P.S. If you would like to discuss the site itself, there is a separate site for that called cseducators.meta.stackexchange.com.
