The CSK8 Research Group (Maya Israel, Quentin Wherfel, Melinda Snodgrass, and Saad Shehab) will lead a discussion about the wide-ranging initiatives to include computer programming and computational thinking in K-12 instruction, and implications for academically diverse learners. They will also share their approach to studying computing education and some implications for K-12 instruction.

Dr. Wolske will discuss his work with local schools and libraries. In particular, the De-Mystifying Technology project at Kenwood Elementary School has led parents and students in building their own computers. Wolske will also talk about other GSLIS and CDI initiatives.

Kathleen Harness will give an overview of the Etoys programming language and the website.
