Microsoft Philanthropies has partnered with the National Center for Women and Information Technology (NCWIT), CSForALL, the Computer Science Teachers Association (CSTA), Code.org, the Technology Education and Literacy in Schools (TEALS) program, and others to create a guide that provides educators with context and concrete steps to build and expand inclusivity in computer science (CS) education. By actively engaging with students in CS of all backgrounds and abilities, educators can build an even stronger pipeline of creativity and innovation to help ensure students have the skills needed.
The Microsoft Philanthropies and Inclusive Computer Science Education webinar was hosted by NGCP on April 23, 2019. In this webinar recording, presenters showcase the Microsoft Guide to Inclusive Computer Science Education and its takeaways.
Microsoft Philanthropies believes in a future where every person has the skills, knowledge, and opportunity to achieve more. Their goal is to ensure all young people are future-ready and have access to the digital skills that employers seek—from basic digital literacy to computer science education.
