So what is “computer education”?

I’m still working on exploring computer science teacher education programs these days.  One symptom is that I’m blogging less, and it will probably diminish to nothing when I go to China Nov. 2-10.  (I’m told that I might not even be able to reach Facebook behind “The Great Firewall of China.”)

But in looking up somebody today, I discovered not one but two “Center(s) for Science, Mathematics, and Computer Education.”  “How cool!” I thought.  One is at the University of Nebraska and the other is at Rutgers.

Here’s the scary part: The words “computer science” do not even appear on either site.  What the heck is “computer education” then?  Best as I can tell, it’s how to use wikis in your classroom and training on building and using Google apps.

I wonder if we can sue them for misrepresentation?
