Changing Computing Education Policy in Your State

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Real change in the distributed US education system is made locally. National groups like
Code.org and CSTA are generating enthusiasm for computing education, but making
change at the state, district, and school level requires the active participation of
individuals and local organizations to engage policy makers, superintendents, and
communities. A reform process for improving computing education pathways will take
place at multiple stages (from elementary/middle/high schools, community and four-year
colleges, and universities) and state by state. The leaders in this session are changing
computing education in California, Massachusetts, and Georgia. Their goal is to make
computing education accessible to all students. They will present approaches that have
worked in each state, and what’s not worked, to show how different states need different
strategies. Most of the session is interactive: The audience will caucus by state, and will
then pose state-specific questions to the panel.
