Book released: Learner-Centered Design of Computing Education: Research on Computing for Everyone

My book in John Carroll’s Human-Centered Informatics series was just released: Learner-Centered Design of Computing Education: Research on Computing for Everyone  http://dx.doi.org/10.2200/S00684ED1V01Y201511HCI033 

The book is available on Amazon here. There’s a cool website with all options for getting the book here.

I’ve put a copy of the Table of Contents and Preface here: http://bit.ly/LCD-CE-Guzdial

My goal is to provide an overview (110 pages worth) of the research (over 300 references) related to computing education for everyone. I aim to connect literature from the traditional computing education research communities (e.g., SIGCSE and ICER) to research in learning sciences, educational psychology, and human-computer interaction.  There is a lot of history in the book because that’s how I like to view these things.

I spent most of 2015 writing this book, and this year set the context for the book.  This was the year that Chicago, San Francisco, Arkansas, and then New York City decided to require computing for everyone. I had all those efforts in mind when I was writing, to tell what research has found about teaching computing to everyone.

I expect to be blogging on some of themes in the book in 2016. Hope you all have Happy Holidays!
