Article
Background Despite ongoing calls for prioritizing K-12 computer science (CS) education, an enduring gender gap exists. Objective We explored one high school CS program where female participation was consistently higher than state averages to better understand how the program was developed. Method Using a case study method, data were collected ove...

Many stakeholders have suggested that if girls are not engaged in computer science at an early age, the field of computer science (and computing-related fields) will continue to lack gender diversity. We need more explorations of how curriculum impacts girls’ interest in computer science at the elementary level. The focus of this research project w...
Article
The aim of this multiple case study was to investigate the influences of professional development coaching on three elementary school teachers' technology integration practices and their coaching experiences. We found that authentic coaching experiences, including modeling and hands-on activities, were considered supportive for teachers' technology...
Article
Full-text available
This multiple case study describes a year-long implementation of a research-based coaching model designed to support changes in elementary teachers’ technology integration practices. We examined coaches’ perceptions of the model through the use of coaches’ questionnaires, reflection notes, and meeting notes. Teachers’ coaching experiences were also...
Article
The focus of this research project was to examine how problem based learning (PBL) impacts students' interest and knowledge in computer science (CS) at the elementary level. By focusing on a problem that emphasizes social activism, we hypothesized that PBL CS could increase interest for students. We employed an iterative design-based research appro...
Article
During the 2018 Professors in Instructional Design (PIDT) Conference, faculty representing over a dozen institutions met to discuss curricular initiatives that were being implemented across programs, and the challenges and benefits of these initiatives. The discussion focused on several areas, including: interdisciplinary/multidisciplinary programs...
Article

This article examines the instructional practices used to teach the computer science (CS) standard of computer devices and systems to undergraduate preservice teachers (PSTs). With computer science education (CSE) gaining an international focus, there is a need to explore a variety of instructional practices used to teach these topics. This descrip...
Article
Full-text available
Teachers have perceived technology professional development (tech-PD) as ineffective, particularly when it does not address individual needs. Researchers need to examine how tech-PD experiences are planned, implemented, and evaluated. Typically K-12 technology leaders (e.g., technology coaches) are responsible for planning, implementing, and evalua...
Article
This study presents the design of a Computer Education Licensure (CEL) program based on a situated learning theory framework. The study captures instructors' design considerations while designing the courses in the CEL program based on this theoretical framework. The study also captures preservice teachers and alumni perceptions regarding the value...
Article
Full-text available
Developing skills to navigate and address potential controversial issues can be beneficial for preservice teachers and their future teaching careers. The implementation of a Structured Academic Controversy (SAC) instructional model is one method to help preservice teachers better understand controversial topics from multiple perspectives. This stud...

Supporting change in teacher practice: Examining shifts of teachers' professional development preferences and needs for technology integration. Studies have shown that when K-12 school districts implement a new technology initiative, it is not always accompanied by effective teacher professional development (PD). Many teachers have indicated that e...
Article
Portfolios used in K-12 classrooms give students the opportunity to collect, showcase, and reflect upon the work they have completed throughout a class or program. With the advent of the digital age, e-portfolios have allowed for this process to be conducted online through the use of Web 2.0 tools, offering a number of advantages and features that...
