The "Computer Science Field Guide" is a online resource for teaching Computer Science to students. This guide is being developed as an online interactive textbook to support the new achievement standards in Computer Science that are being rolled out in New Zealand from 2011 to 2013. Eventually it will expand to support other curricula, but the initial focus is to meet the urgent need of resources in NZ. The New Zealand project started in 2012, with the first materials released to the public in 2013. The main focus in our development at the moment is content in the form of text, both for students and guidance for teachers. We will soon be shifting our focus to developing images, designing interactives and tuning the existing chapters.

If you are a teacher (or involved in education) and wish to have access to the teacher's version of the guide, please email Tim Bell, with proof of your position (link to your school's directory with your name listed is fine).
