COMPUGIRLS Remixed: Developing a Culturally Responsive Social System

Project: Research project

Project Details

Description

Arizona State Universitys Center for Gender Equity in Science and Technology (CGEST) proposes an I3 development grant that addresses Absolute Priority 4(Influencing the Development of Non-Cognitive Factors) and Absolute Priority 5
(Serving Rural Communities) by expanding our empirically-based program,
COMPUGIRLS, to examine the impact of developing non-cognitive skills on STEM
education within 3 rural and 5 urban high schools throughout Arizona. In collaboration with American Institutes for Research, our external evaluator, the COMPUGIRLS Remixed: Developing a Culturally Responsive Social System project will provide access
to 640 adolescent girls of color within LEAs.
Based on a theory of culturally responsive computing, we propose building on
our existing strategies to meet the following objectives: Objective #1: Revise
culturally responsive computing curriculum as an in-school model; outcome: more girls
from high needs areas will have access to a prolonged intervention with promising
evidence. Objective #2: Expand our curriculum to provide participants with increased
opportunities to positively affect their interests, self-efficacy, self-regulatory, self-concept and computational thinking skills; outcome: more girls from participating high needs area possess math skills poising them for postsecondary success in computer science; Objective #3: Integrate more experiences within our curriculum that demonstrate cultural relevance of learning from varied social actors; outcome: More girls from high need areas will have access to a strong support system that will influence self-perception in short and long-term outcomes.
