Thursday, September 17, 2020 (Central Time) — 12:30PM - 1:15PM
Broadening participation in computing includes serious efforts to infiltrate current school structures and promote equity and access, especially in underserved communities. Teacher preparation, particularly for those that are new to computing, must include a sustainable methodology such that capacity building can occur over an appropriate period of time. The selection of curricula is critical. Curriculum often drives pedagogical decisions which frequently determines various levels of inclusivity and learning environments in the classroom. For more than a decade, research in computer science education has lifted diverse voices and perspectives from various national organizations. The featured panelist represent efforts from various projects and bring to the forefront varying implementation methods focused on equity in computer science education. They present evidence-based narratives that can transform K-12 policies and initiatives.
