Creating a SIG for Computer Science Education at AERA

Hilary Dwyer is starting an effort to create a special interest group at the American Educational Research Association (AERA) just for computer science education.  Please do complete her poll — especially if you are an AERA member.  We need 75 signatures on the poll to be able to create the SIG.

A few of us have been talking about creating a larger presence for computer science education within AERA.  In particular, we want to start a special interest group (SIG).  Please take a few moments to fill out the following survey.  I am trying to determine if there are enough people to start a SIG (we need 75), the benefits of doing so, and how a SIG would differ from ICER or SIGCSE.
Poll: Creating a SIG for Computer Science Education at AERA
Creating and sustaining a CS Education community within AERA could be exciting work to further establish the field.  I would appreciate a forum to talk with researchers from Education who study computer science — a view not necessarily captured well at other venues right now.  We could also tailor such a group to K-12 computer science and other research topics such as professional development and teacher learning.
Please email me with any questions or comments. Forward on to your co-authors, advisors, colleagues, and other AERA members that could be interested!
Many thanks,

Hilary Dwyer
