What kinds of jobs does computer science offer?

The presentations on the Social Impacts of Computer Science are progressing well. Students have enjoyed working with their various Web 2.0 Tools. They are working in pairs and they have a rubric by which they will be evaluated. Presentations start tomorrow. There was a lot of discussion among the team members as they worked on their projects. Some of the challenges I saw them face were related to trying to figure out what kinds of jobs were coming up as the result of specific technological advancements.

I have started planning out the next two weeks. I am going to introduce the concept of abstraction. I want the students to try and wrap their minds around the idea of abstraction. I am planning to get the students to create flowcharts for simple problems (both on paper and on the computer.) The next step is to create UML diagrams for slightly bigger projects. More as things progress.
