Building an operating system for
Computer Science Education
Cross-site Themes

“Stories from the Field” shares the experiences of people who have acted locally to advance computer science education nationally. The sites represent a range of locations, institutions, and strategies that demonstrate some of the different pathways others can take to further computer science education in their own communities. University faculty, curriculum developers, district administrators, teachers and others share their perspectives, their successful strategies, their biggest challenges and offer insights and recommendations for others.

In April and May 2013, researchers interviewed 3-7 individuals per site. The interviews began with a single, primary leader who then recommended others to participate. Researchers also reviewed effort artifacts and on-line resources.
