K-12 Computing Teachers Equity Workshop – Scholarships Available

May 12, 2010

Hosted in Partnership with the Computer Science Teachers Association (CSTA) and the Anita Borg Institute for Women and Technology (ABI), the 2010 K-12 Computing Teachers Equity Workshop will be held in Atlanta, GA on Saturday October 2, 2010.  I participated in this workshop in 2009, and I highly recommend it to any computing teacher seeking strategies, allies, and support in reaching all students.  Scholarships are available, but you must apply soon!

This workshop will convene K-12 computer science teachers who work with under-represented populations of students at the Grace Hopper Celebration to:

  • Instigate a discussion of equity and computer science curriculum;
  • Create knowledge sharing opportunities on concrete solutions grounded in teachers’ articulated, specific needs;
  • Disseminate these solutions to a broad audience of teachers, STEM practitioners, and interested stakeholders via workshop, Town Hall meeting and discussion of a newly released white paper; and
  • Evaluate the effectiveness of these solutions in classrooms that serve under-represented student populations.
