CS for Appalachia
CS for Appalachia: A Research-Practice Partnership for Integrating Computer Science into East Tennessee Schools is a two-year project led by Lynn Hodge, STEM education professor. The project is focused on developing a research-practice partnership among researchers, teachers and administrators to address challenges related to teaching computer science at the elementary level. Building upon the shared vision developed within the research-practice partnership, the $250,000 grant includes opportunities for K-5 teachers to engage in professional development about the Tennessee computer science standards.
This project is related to the project Planting the seeds for computer science education in East Tennessee through a research-practice partnership, which was funded through the University of Tennessee’s Community Engaged Research Seed Program.
