Computational Learning vs Computational Reality

The relationship between computer-science education and computational trends in Github

by Flávio Pessoa

alt text


Teaching children how to code is a common goal in education in the US. Initiatives by the public and private sectors – such as and CSforAll – are trying to address this with extensive funding and recommendations for courses and syllabi. But the long-term objectives of such initiatives are not clear. Will they create better citzens and more informed students? Or are they focused on a more productive workforce? These different agendas need to be aligned with concrete paths for the children and also juxtaposed with their professional and lived experience.

Based on CSTA K 12 Computer Science Standards, and Github repositories as proxies for applied computer science, this visualization shows gaps and opportunities on both sides.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
