Building a Pathway for CS Principles Teachers
The University of Alabama Tuscaloosa proposes to develop a new model for preparing preservice teachers to realize the CSforAll goal of scaling computer science education to tens of thousands of schools. The project will expand an existing research-practitioner partnership to support preservice Secondary Mathematics students.
The Development of a Statewide Network for Teacher Preparation in CS
J Ben Schafer
The University of Northern Iowa proposes a Planning Grant to develop an RPP to facilitate computer science teacher professional development across Iowa. The proposed RPP for Iowa includes university personnel to supply content, curriculum design experts and researchers, and other implementation supports.
PiLaCS: Participating in Literacies and CS
Using an approach called translanguaging, PILA-CS is a partnership between city educators, researchers in computer science education, and researchers in language and literacy that seeks to tailor New York computer science educators' teachings to whatever language skills children bring to the table.
Identifying Participation Barriers to Computer Science Education
The primary goal of the small strand, K-14 project "Collaborative Research: Identifying Participation Barriers to Computer Science Education in Rural Mississippi" is to develop a researcher-practitioner partnership (RPP) to identify barriers to participation in computer science education in high poverty, rural areas of Mississippi.
Developing Inclusive K-12 Computing Pathways
Digital Promise Global will join with the League of Innovative Schools to design, investigate and improve inclusive computing pathways for K-12 students. The project will address three research questions, each with a deliberate focus on access and equity, to increase underrepresented student participation.
A Partnership to Implement the Inclusive CS Model of Professional Development and a Digital Platform for Students with Disabilities
Through a Research-Practitioner Partnership with Fairfax County Public Schools, this project will prepare teachers to both implement and design inclusive computer science curricula for all students, including those with high-incidence disabilities. To do so, the investigators will use the Inclusive Computer Science (ICS) Model of professional development (PD) and a universally-designed tool, created by the researchers, called the Digital Effective Platform for Inclusive Computational Thinking and Computer Science (DEPICT-CS).
