Friday Institute Crosstalk: Growing Computer Science for All During COVID and Beyond

Friday Institute cross–talk sessions give internal teams an opportunity to briefly share a portion of their work and stimulate discussion across all teams at the Friday Institute and College of Education to further collaborations, introduce new concepts, address research design problems and more.

This month, our CS4All team will share updates on the statewide computer science education initiative, including the new K-12 CS Standards for NC. The team will also discuss how they’ve redesigned CS programs and activities to continue momentum during the COVID pandemic. After this short overview of current programs and initiatives, the CS4All team will lead discussion about ways to collaborate to ensure the systemic implementation of CS in our K-12 schools brings equitable opportunities to all students in the state. Discussion will focus on potential collaboration with other teams, ideas for external partners and schools to engage on this topic, and opportunities for future proposals and projects. RSVP to Marjorie Santoro at msantor@ncsu.edu.
