New computing curricula are being created every day. Seemingly every permutation of words like "teach", "kids", "code", & "CS" has been turned into an organization (or company). Technologists everywhere are either being drafted to weigh in on curriculaor are doing so anyway.
Everybody's got an opinion or three. But in the current & foreseeable reality of computer science education in the USA (and in many other countries), what does reality look like & how can we be effective in it? Might it even be that by working with reality, we may actually get *better* outcomes than if we ignored it?
This talk will distill lessons from Bootstrap (http://www.bootstrapworld.org/), one of the largest computing outreach programs in the USA.
Presented by: Shriram Krishnamurthi, Brown University. Featuring joint work with Emmanuel Schanzer & Kathi Fisler.
