Computer Science for ALL (CSforAll:RPP) Research Practitioner Partnership
Broadening Participation to Include African-American and Hispanic Students with Disabilities in Computer Science Learning Using Voice User Interface Project-Based Learning
The National Science Foundation awarded a grant to Changing Expectations for a Computer Science for All (CSforAll:RPP) three-year project. The project is designed to study and increase African-American and Hispanic students with disabilities' interest, engagement, learning, knowledge, and persistence in computer science education (CS) and careers. The study will employ quasi-experimental methods to investigate the effects of activities on district CS policies and implementation. Changing Expectations will leverage its existing network of teachers in the Changing Expectations WeTeach_CS Computer Science Collaborative, practitioners in Texas school districts, special educators, researchers and evaluators to form the Students with Disabilities in Computer Science Research Alliance (SWDCS).
