The New Equity Battlefield: Computing for All
Against a backdrop of growing interest in learning coding as an economic driver and computational thinking as a new literacy, this panel discussion will lean into the equity challenge of realistically addressing “computing for all” in K-12 education. Leveraging timely research and real-world practices, we will address two persistent yet often overlooked questions: 1. What does “computing for all” look like in the average classroom? 2. What support is needed to ensure educational equity?
