    Computing as Multiliteracies (ECLES)

    The “Computing as Multiliteracies Partnership” (CoMP) explores equity within the context of computing across the K-12 curriculum. Our projects, Writing Data Stories (WDS) and Participating in Literacies and Computer Science (PiLa-CS) come together to examine: What are general approaches to equitable, literacy-based computing education?

  • ECCL / Oakland Teachers Advancing Climate Action

    The Oakland Teachers Advancing Climate Action (OTACA) collaborative builds on existing collaborations of teachers who are working to make learning local, active, and relevant for students. The OTACA community designs and tries out student-action projects related to environmental justice.

    Funded by: National Science Foundation DGE-2222255


  • Writing Data Stories

    This project integrates computational data analysis into the middle school science curriculum. Students combine personal experience, interviews, and journalistic investigations of scientific phenomena with data investigations to create multimodal “data stories” that both tell stories about data and how it was collected and analyzed, as well as with data about socio-scientific issues.

  • Computer Science for Racial Justice (CS4RJ)

    The Computer Science for Racial Justice (CS4RJ) project aims to support just and sustainable engagements in CS learning alongside Black, Indigenous, People of Color (BIPOC) communities. It seeks to support historical reauthoring, a version of computational “remixing” that encourages students to engage with the ethical and political dimensions of computing.

  • Computing+ Reading Group

    A standing group of researchers working at the intersection of computing, data, and science education. We curate and synthesize relevant work across literatures and domains, and consider implications for K12 educators and researchers.


  • Sustained Modeling in K12 Science (A2S)

    From Access to Sustainability: Investigating Ways to Foster Sustainable Use of Computational Modeling in K-12 Science Classrooms (A2S) seeks to support and examine the development of computational modeling as a sustained practice in middle school science classrooms

    Funded by: National Science Foundation DRL-2010413


  • DataSketch

    The DataSketch project explored how middle school students think and learn about data visualization. It involved two interrelated strands of work: (1) research on grade 5-8 students’ existing competencies and practices related to data visualization; and (2) the development and study of a tablet based toolkit for students to create digital ink programmable visualizations that respond to archival or live data stream input.
