COMPUGIRLS扩大

总结

该项目将支持近700名师生。本研究将有助于加深对“电脑女孩”课程对“科技自我概念”、“学术自我可能”及“自我调节”之影响的认识。


描述

“计算机女孩扩大项目”利用一项文化相关技术(CRT)计划,帮助凤凰城高需求区13-18岁的女孩进入STEM劳动力大军。该项目以美国国家科学基金会(nsf)成功资助的COMPUGIRLS奖(DRL 08-33773)为基础,该奖利用基于社会公正的多媒体项目,促使年轻女性参与活动,增进对STEM和信息与通信技术(ICT)职业的知识、理解和意识。opebet体育官网app亚利桑那州立大学将与科罗拉多州的数学、工程和科学成就(CMESA)项目、教育发展中心、YMCA Boulder、凤凰城联合高中区、Gila河印第安人社区和whititerriver Junction Apache印第安人社区合作实施该项目。扩大“计算机女孩”项目的目标是增加资源不足地区接受CRT方案的女孩人数;维持和复制科技测试策略项目的最佳实践;建立可持续和可复制的在线专业发展社区;并根据研究结果创建社区和学术报告。“COMPUGIRLS”使用了一个理论框架,其中包括文化响应的实践和未来的时间视角,以补充项目的职业重点。项目设计包括研究和评价组成部分。混合方法的参与性研究设计旨在增加对以问题为基础的多媒体课程如何影响服务不足和代表性不足的女孩进入STEM/ICT劳动力队伍的理解,该课程包含基于证据的文化相关教学法; how the scale-up process of a girl-centered culturally relevant program operates across learning contexts; and how technology operationalizes professional development and peer networking in different contexts that adopt the COMPUGIRLS program model. The evaluation plan will assess the impact on students' science and STEM learning dispositions, intent to pursue STEM careers, and sustainability. Project deliverables include dissemination to six sites (YMCA-Boulder, Colorado MESA, Whiteriver Unified School District, and ASU Polytechnic and Mercado), four revised courses, an 80-hour professional development course, an online learning community, and an annual cross-site event. The young women participate in four technology courses over a one-year period (e.g. Introduction to Social Justice; SCRATCH, Introduction to Second Life, Second Life Capstone), ending with a 4-8 week summer internship at a local business site. Professional development for teachers utilizes a hybrid approach that incorporates an 8-hour face-to-face course and 100 self-paced online activities. The COMPUGIRLS Learning Community (CLC) is an online learning platform designed to support both students and teachers with social networking, training webinars, and opportunities to showcase completed projects. This project will support nearly 700 students and teachers. It is anticipated that the research studies will help increase understanding of the effect of the COMPUGIRLS program on self concept in technology, academic possible selves, and self regulation in girls of color, in addition to the affects of the model on indigenous girls' cultural selves as expressed in understanding and commitment to cultural traditions. Research findings will be disseminated through the National Center for Women and Information Technology, peer reviewed journals, conferences and meetings, and the COMPUGIRLS Learning Community.
