Coding for Diversity
This panel will feature those working to introduce coding and digital technologies to younger generations of underrepresented populations. Non-profits such as Black Girls Who Code, Code Now, Code2040, Girls Who Code, and Hive Learning Network have created informal learning environments that shepherd youth by emphasizing three ideas: empowerment through creativity, gaining marketable skills, and collaborating with a strong peer network. Speakers will discuss strategies that they have adopted to engage new groups of learners in coding, market opportunities, and address inequities in education.
- Which informal educational models are ideal for nurturing and preparing underrepresented populations in STEM fields?
- What are the primary socio-emotional supports for minority youth that can be addressed by engagement with digital media-enhanced pedagogy?
- How can emerging technologies create participatory learning and offset stereotype threat?
