Google-Gallup CS Education Data: Further Explorations of Underserved Communities - Tuesday, August 15th at noon

To understand the landscape of computer science (CS) education, Google and Gallup have surveyed 16,000 students, parents, teachers, principals, and superintendents across the U.S. each year for two years. In this webinar, they will share further insights into underserved communities, including new data on those in rural areas and small towns, as well as insights on girls, Black students, and Hispanic students. With this data, they hope educators and advocates can realize the unique circumstances of these groups and better serve their needs for equitable CS education.

Understanding and Responding to Incidents of Bias (Reprise) - Thursday, September 14th at 1pm

Back by popular demand! Like schools and other community spaces, afterschool providers across the country have noticed an uptick in incidents of bias over the past year among students, parents, and even sometimes staff. This behavior might range from insensitive jokes and remarks, to hateful language or graffiti, to bullying and harassment. If one of these incidents happens in your program, how you respond is critical for maintaining the trust and respect of youth and their families. National experts like the Anti-Defamation League and Teaching Tolerance, a project of the Southern Poverty Law Center, have been working on issues of bias and hate for decades. In this webinar, they'll share what they've learned and their resources for educators. Join us for a conversation about this very important topic!

Speakers:​

  • Hoyt J. Phillips III, Manager, Teaching & Learning, Teaching Tolerance, a project of the Southern Poverty Law Center
  • Jinnie Spiegler, Director of Curriculum, Anti-Defamation League
  • Melissa Ballard, STEM Manager, Afterschool Alliance (moderator)
