Equitable K-12 Computer Science Education
We are able to celebrate progress this year due to the increased focus on equitable teaching practices in CS Education. As noted in our theme, we’ve made great progress, but there are still advancements to make so that every student has an equal opportunity to learn computer science.
Our partners at the Kapor Center have developed this definition of equitable K-12 Computer Science Education that can be used as a guiding star when developing your own teaching practice.
Join CSTA for the Equity in Action Summit
The Equity in Action Summit brings together K-12 Computer Science teachers by calling them to action to transform their approach to providing equitable CS education rooted in justice and to engage in strategies to equip themselves with resources on representation, access, and culturally sustaining pedagogies. By the end of the summit, attendees will be able to choose resources to develop a unit or lesson that is equitable and meets the individual needs of their students.
This event will occur on March 2, 2024.
