K-12 Computing Teachers Workshop
“Overcoming Barriers, Boundaries and Bad News”
Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing
October 1-2, 2010 – Hyatt Regency Atlanta
Hosted in Partnership with the Computer Science Teachers Association (CSTA) and the Anita Borg Institute for Women and Technology (ABI)
The K-12 workshop is hosted in Partnership with the Computer Science Teachers Association (CSTA) and the Anita Borg Institute for Women and Technology (ABI) and will be the second K-12 teachers workshop held at the Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing Conference. This year’s theme “Overcoming Barriers, Boundaries and Bad News” will build upon the equity issue discussions from the inaugural workshop which culminated in a white paper “Addressing Core Equity Issues in K-12 Computer Science Education: Identifying Barriers and Sharing Strategies.”
The 2010 workshop will convene K-12 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.
