Education Week covers CS Ed Research presented at AERA

That is not a title I ever thought I’d write for a blog post.  How terrific that CS Ed is big at the American Education Research Association (AERA) Annual Meeting, and is getting coverage in EdWeek!  (Thanks to Alfred Thompson for sharing this.)

As the movement has taken off, however, a number of basic questions have yet to be answered, and even more new questions have started to emerge. How do schools make computer science education more accessible for students from groups that have historically been shut out of the field? What types of lessons and programming environments are best for novice learners?  How do we know if students are learning what we want them to learn?

And, perhaps most significantly, why are America’s schools seeking to make computer science education universal in the first place?

All are topics that researchers across the country are actively investigating.
