Want to grow fantastic secondary CS teachers? Start them with Equity-based PD

Prior to 2012, I was a science teacher with a ton of energy and a new-teacher salary, so I took every paid and all-expenses-covered professional development (PD) opportunity that came my way. One such workshop was the University of Virginia’s Tapestry (now Lighthouse Tapestry) program, designed to help high school computer science teachers recruit and engage students from underrepresented groups.

As we emerge from the fog of the last 18 months, we’ll each come away with our own learnings. While some will be unique to our individual pandemic experiences, others are commonly shared. Among those which are widely acknowledged is the need for greater recognition of our teachers and the importance of technology education.

The Importance of Equitable Teaching Practices in CS

Posted by Monica McGill on Nov 16, 2020

In the 1980s, over 1 in 3 women studied computer science in college, providing demonstrable evidence that women are quite capable of understanding and excelling in computer science studies. This is in stark contrast to the number of women who study today, which resides in the range of 15%, and which has led to some questioning whether women have the capacity to learn computer science.

Our CSTA chapters are the pulse, the heartbeat of the organization. Supported and sustained by a network of incredible chapter leaders, our chapters convene, network, and provide a strong local community of practice. Whether it is through regular chapter meetings, special events such as CSPD Week, or even informal ‘happy hours,’ chapters are the lifeline for CS teachers who are seeking community and a way to grow their CS content and practice. With the onset of the pandemic and even our CSTA conference going virtual, I had to wonder — how are chapters doing it? How are they continuing to support their communities?

Fostering Creativity, Curiosity, and Generosity Through Robotics

Introducing robotics in early childhood can make technology and engineering education more engaging and hands-on. But can a robotics curriculum that’s designed to be developmentally appropriate for young children also help them become better citizens and human beings?

Intersectionality of Systemic Racism, CS, and our Role

Posted by Cate Sauer on Jun 11, 2020
story-thumbnail
For this month's member spotlight, we speak with Charity Freeman, a 2019-2020 CSTA Equity Fellow and chief equity officer of her CS classroom. 
 
She is a champion for teacher and student rights and participated in the Chicago Teachers Union strike in the fall of 2019. We are so excited to share this space with her to discuss equity in CS, and her values as an educator. Charity teaches computer science at Lane Tech College Prep High School on the northwest side of Chicago, IL.

Black Lives Matter to CSTA

Posted by CSTA on Jun 05, 2020
story-thumbnail
Equity in computer science education is at the core of CSTA’s work and that will only be possible in a world where Black Lives Matter. The killings of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and Tony McDade at the hands of police are the most recent in an unconscionably long list that began in 1619. We see the effects of systemic racism throughout our society, and we see it in our schools and classrooms, where our current systems and structures deny Black students the opportunity to access and persist in computer science.

Looking To Next Year

Posted by Vicky Sedgwick on May 19, 2020

For the past few years, it has been exciting to watch CS education explode across the K-12 landscape with headlines like “33 states adopted 57 computer science ed policies since 2018” and “Fifty Nifty: Every state has adopted K-12 CS policy!” popping up in my newsfeed. The future seemed bright as more and more states adopted CS standards for students, even in K-8, which is where my heart lies.

Then, our world turned upside down … what does this mean for the hope of CSforAll in K-8 education?

Let’s face it, on a scale from “I don’t believe in crab” to “everything is crab,*” right now everything is pretty crustacean.  I particularly don’t know any teachers who are happy: we miss our students, when we can interact with them through online means it is often frustrating, and well, everything is crab.
