  • PART 1: INTRODUCTION, (JANE)NCWIT works on a lot of levels, but particularly with girls we want to make sure they have experiences, role models, encouragement and recognition so they can be creative contributors through computer science and IT.We know counselors are important allies in this effort, and we’re grateful to ISCA and DePaul School of Counselor Education for partnering with us, and to Google for generously hosting our event today.
  • PART 1: INTRODUCTION, cont., (CATHERINE)NCWIT has a talent development program called Aspirations in Computing– At the heart of it is an award called the Award for Aspirations in Computing that’s been conferred on almost 3,000 girls since 2008. We don’t talk about it as an award program anymore because it’s grown to be so much more, partly because of the fire we lit under so many girls across the country. We’ll talk more about this later and meet two champions of the program. For now,I’d like to show you a few pictures from our award event last April here in Chicago that get at our mission….
  • PART 1: INTRODUCTION, cont., (CATHERINE)We want to make sure lots of girls like this little one…
  • PART 1: INTRODUCTION, cont., (CATHERINE)Grow up with experiences like award winner Do’Monique Thompson from Kenwood Academy has had… so we turn out lots of highly skilled women like Tracy Austin, IT Global Infrastructure Operations Director at Kellogg’s… or like
  • PART 1: INTRODUCTION, cont., (CATHERINE) …Khallai (‘Callie’)Taylor, who is a professor of Computer Information Systems at Triton College. Right now these girls and women are the exception, and we’d like to make them the RULE!
  • PART 1: INTRODUCTION, cont., (CATHERINE)This is our agenda and the questions we’ll answer during the session. [go over points]Say: And in that vein, we want to paint a new picture of who does tech so throughout the our presentation you’ll see young woman involved with technology. This young woman is a software engineer who developed software that aids in art restoration.
  • PART 1: INTRODUCTION, cont., (CATHERINE)So, we brought our initiative to Illinois for two reasons, one there’s a gap here between opportunity and preparedness– that is, there are more technical jobs than people prepared to fill them. AND there’s a lot of work going on here that we want to support. For instance, the initiative called Taste of Computing. Here’s their We both want to get more people and more kinds of people involved in computing --- opening up opportunity and increasing the size and makeup of the tech workforce. You’ll see in a bit that we are part of a large movement that is likely to have some impact on the way you approach career guidance and how you direct kids to next experiences. Let’s dig in.
  • PART 1: INTRODUCTION, cont., (CATHERINE)WHAT IT IS [Read Slide] –On Click- HOW WE DO ITABOUT NCWIT and SPONSORS MERCK and GOOGLE Say: This is a project of the K-12 Alliance of NCWIT [enseewit], the National Center for Women & Information Technology. The K-12 Alliance includes ASCA, DePaul, and Google and 40 other organizations who are interested in building a strong IT workforce that includes women. The Merck Company Foundation and Google fund this program. Later we’ll ask you to imagine why companies like these would be interested in engaging counselors in this effort. So think about this: Why do companies like Merck and Google want a large and diverse technical workforce?3. GENDER INCLUSIVE INFORMATION AND RESOURCES Say: We want to let you know up front that while we emphasize female participation, this is a gender-inclusive campaign. All the information and resources you receive are useful when working with boys and girls.
  • PART 1: INTRODUCTION, cont., (CATHERINE)1. ESTABLISH SHARED MISSION Say: In planning the campaign, the alliance focused on ASCA’s mission. The campaign shares your interest in promoting student success, and your commitment to your own professional growth. We are here because we know counselors play an integral role in guiding students’ education and career choices. We want to help you do your job by providing you with a quality professional development experience, and information and resources you can use back at work. These students are learning programming to create game animations.
  • Part 2: WHAT IS COMPUTER SCIENCE?, cont. (JANE)We’re going to watch a 5 minute video that gets at the heart of computer science– programming, or “coding.” This group,, is intent on building out the talent pool and making sure more –and more kinds- of people are ready for CS. This video has had 10.5 million views since it went up in March. After we watch we’ll look at the computer science activities kids can do right on the website. Also, tune in to the people. When we showed this to kids in Sacramento, they really connected with one person. Imagine who your students would connect with.VIEWRETURN TO CODE.ORG SITE, do CodeHS Activity
  • Part 2: WHAT IS COMPUTER SCIENCE?, cont. (JANE)INTRODUCE FRANCESCA SLADELet’s meet someone engaged in the work,Francesca Slade is a software engineer at Google. We came to know her because of her work with high school kids, some of whom are part of our Aspirations network. She is co-founder of Chicago Women Developers, a group that works on giving adult women access to technical education, so that they can have the computing skills they need to work in a modern world.
  • PREVIEW OFPART 3: STATE of COMPUTING: CATHERINE Say: Now we’re going to dive into the state of computing nationally and locally to make you aware of the context, and why we need broader participation. By “broader participation” I mean we need more people as well as more kinds of people inventing our next technologies.Can you tell what’s going on in this picture? These young people are learning to program small devices.
  • PART 3: STATE of COMPUTING - CATHERINE We want to make the case for why counselors and teachers and parents and everybody should care about getting more kids ready to contribute. Now, think about technology in your life for a moment. Are there any statements you disagree with? Or would want to add? [Discuss]Since IT is all these things it makes sense that a broad spectrum of people contribute to it. This isn’t the case today and we’ll discuss more about the value of diversity as we go on.YOUNG PEOPLE ARE PART WAY THERE, THAT’S YOUR HOOK. Say: Young people love technology are are good at using it. Conversations starting with their USE can easily segue into a conversation about inventing or improving IT: You might ask, Wouldn’t you like to improve your smart phone, or invent the next killer app?
  • PART 3: STATE of COMPUTING - CATHERINENOTE- Catherine this slide is old slide the ave. all occupationsTHERE IS A HUGE DEMAND FOR TECH WORKERS. SAY: This chart shows projected employment in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math-related occupations. On average all STEM occupations are projected to grow by 10% between now 2008 and 2018. You’ll see that computing jobs (the first three) are growing at a faster rate than all jobs combined and other STEM jobs, too. [ON CLICK] Overall, IT growth is projected at 22%
  • PART 3: STATE of COMPUTING - CATHERINEDEMAND FOR QUALIFIED WORKERS IS HIGH. Say: At current graduation rates and projected annual job openings, we’ll only fill 61% of the 1.4 million jobs that will be added by 2018. [ON CLICK] If you consider that most of these jobs require a bachelor’s degree, then we are prepared to fill 29% of them.
  • PART 3: STATE of COMPUTING – CATHERINEThis slide is hot linked. Click on it to get to National trends, discuss.
  • PART 4STATE OF COMPUTING STATE AND LOCAL (JANE and BRENDA)Let’s talk about what is going on in CS Education and jobs in IllinoisIntroducing,Brenda Wilkerson, CTE Career Cluster Manager for IT Programs at Chicago Public Schools and who has her own background it tech. Did you ever get mentored like these girls? Things are changing!
  • PART 4STATE OF COMPUTING STATE AND LOCAL (JANE)Notice that Illinois shows as blue, so the range shows we’re able to fill between 70% of jobs. And here are the job indicators.
  • PART 4STATE OF COMPUTING STATE AND LOCAL (JANE)Compare the AP – (local preparedness) to Jobs available… We can drill down to the local level by looking at congressional districts here – [next slide]
  • PART 3: STATE OF COMPUTING SLIDE 4 of 5We can drill down to the local level by looking at congressional districts hereYou’ll notice that the Chicago metro area are range from 8-66%. A lot of the jobs that could be filled by home-grown talent.[Go back to ed jobs map to look at edu/employment indicators]
  • PART 4: STATE of COMPUTING – STATE AND LOCAL - JANEThis slide is hot linked. Click on it to get to District trends, discuss. Look at congressional districts 7 (chicago) and the 13
  • PART 4: STATE of COMPUTING – STATE AND LOCAL – JANE and BRENDAAs Catherine said, there’s change afoot, and one that warrents your attention is the Taste of Computing CS education initiative. So, here are the intentions ofWe both want to get more people and more kinds of people involved in computing --- increasing the size of the workforce and its makeup, too. You’ll see in a bit that we are part of a large movement that is likely to have some impact on the way you approach career guidance and how you direct kids to next experiences. Let’s dig in.
  • PART 4: STATE of COMPUTING – STATE AND LOCAL – JANE and BRENDAAt the heart of a national movement – 35 CTE schools in Illinois
  • PART 4: STATE of COMPUTING – STATE AND LOCAL – JANE and BRENDAParticipating HS – 28 of these have teachers who have been through the training two years, Teachers from the other 26 are in their first year.
  • TRANSITION to PART 5 - QUALITY of JOBS (CATHERINE)This summer Chicago girls in computing were on the job teaching computer science to middle school kids. You’ll meet one of these ‘teacher-girls’ later today.Now we’re going to talk a little about the quality of jobs in tech.
  • PART 6: WOMEN UNDERREPRESENTED IN COMPUTING (JANE)As you know, the field is dominated by white males. These are students at Boston University building remote-controlled flying robots.
  • PART 6: WOMEN UNDERREPRESENTED IN COMPUTING (JANE)YOUNG WOMEN HAVE WHAT IT TAKES. Say: This is kind of a good news/bad news story. The problem doesn’t lie in ability, girls have what it takes. Notice that girls take the AP Calculus test at about the same rate as boys. In STEM, they tend to focus on the life sciences. ISEF is the International Science and Engineering Fair.APTITUDE IN SCIENCE AND MATH SHOULD CARRY OVER TO PURSUITS IN COMPUTING BUT IT DOESN’T. Say: We’ll talk about ways to reverse the trend.
  • PART 6: WOMEN UNDERREPRESENTED IN COMPUTING (JANE)WOMEN ARE UNDERREPRESENTED IN IT.Say: Women have reached parity or even surpassed the number of men in biology, chemistry and math. [CLICK] Computer Science and Computer Engineering both hover around 10%. One thing this tells us is that women are good at science and mathematics, but it doesn’t translate into selecting a computing major.
  • PART 7: BROADER PARTICIPATION MATTERS (CATHERINE)Say: We left you with a bad picture but it’s getting better and this is where NCWIT steps in. We look forward to bringing more women into the technology sector and into these good jobs. NCWIT, the National Center for Women & Information Technology is a group of alliances representing over 300 nonprofits, education institutions, corporations and start-ups that hold a shared vision for greater diversity in computing all across the pipeline. [Describe groups] Each group has projects intended to reform conditions in their sector. AND as its backbone, NCWIT has a team of social scientists who guide these groups (describe a little?)
  • PART 7: BROADER PARTICIPATION MATTERS (CATHERINE)TtheK-12 Alliance of NCWIT, which guides C4Cis made up of 44 nonprofits, girl- and youth-serving organizations, education groups, professional member associations, high-tech companies and universities.Note that ASCA (American School Counselor Association) and ACTE (Association for Career and Technical Education) are members, as is Google, and as of last week (and too late to make the slide), so is who’s video you saw.Some are huge, some are small. Some help us with broad reach, others help us get to small but important niches, like Reinhardt and Associates [turtle, bottom row], which works on STEM issues with Native American youth in the Great Lakes region.
  • PART 7: BROADER PARTICIPATION MATTERS (CATHERINE)Query: As we said, this campaign is funded by Google and the Merck Company Foundation. Why might companies like Merck need IT and want a large and diverse technical workforce? DISCUSS with a neighbor, then we’ll hear from you. (Participants usually come up with four or five good reasons.)Let’s hear a few different ideas. [We can anticipate they will come up with ideas that show up on next slide.] [If you want,DESCRIBE MERCK: 1) Innovation in drug design relies heavily on technology – it’s necessary for for modeling, designing testing, creating instrumentation, and other “bench science” research; also for computer-controlled manufacturing and quality control 2) HUGE back office IT workforce – from inventory management, to communications, to internal operations.]REINFORCE PARTICIPANT IDEAS, TEE UP NEXT SLIDE. Say: You came up with a lot of good reasons why broader participation matters. We’ll share what we know– you’ll see you were right on target. [advance next slide]
  • Jane Cleland Huang, Associate Professor DePaul University School of Computer Science, Telecommunications, and Information Systems, Director of the Systems and Requirements Engineering Center
  • PART 8: MEET TECHNICAL WOMEN (JANE)Abril Vela is a senior at Northside College Prep and an intern at 8th Light here in Chicago where she is learning to program in Ruby. She is a 2012 winner of the NCWIT Award for Aspirations in Computing and is one of the founders of Chicago Girls in Computing, a group of young women who are teaching middle school kids computer science! AND after her remarks she’s going to teach you about computer science, without a computer!
  • PART 8: MEET TECHNICAL WOMEN (JANE)Show slides from here (ppt is hot linked)
  • PART 9: WHAT CAN COUNSELORS DO? (CATHERINE)Say: So this little girl wants to know – WHAT’RE YOU GOING TO DO FOR ME? We understand there are four things that influence kids’ education and career choices. Can you guess what they are? (take responses)
  • PART 7: WHAT CAN COUNSELORS DO, cont.Bullet 1: Lots of kids have the potential to be great at computing but we don’t always “see” it in them. Our own associations and history can get in the way, so we urge you to keep a fresh eye out for kids who might have an aptitude for computing. Creative kids, mathy kids, analytical kids…Bulltet 2: Those four factors are: Access to quality experiences, positive role models,, encouragement and recognition. Bullet 3: Say things like “Wonder what’s under the hood? How could you make it better?” or “How might you solve that problem with technology?Bullet 4: Help a girl gain recognition through the Award for Aspirations in computing.
  • PART 9: WHAT CAN COUNSELORS DO? (CATHERINE)Let people riff on each, being particular about CS edu. Then we move on and provide some advice.
  • PART 9: WHAT CAN COUNSELORS DO? (CATHERINE)ANOTHER PROJECT OF NCWIT (read slide). The idea is to recognize and encourage technical girls at the time when they are determining their education and career paths. If you know a technical girl, encourage her to apply. Tell other counselors and the computer science and IT teachers at your school to encourage a girl to apply. Fabulous prizes, exposure to companies and U’s that give scholarships, and access to a network of girls who support one another.
  • PART 7: WHAT CAN COUNSELORS DO, cont.ANOTHER PROJECT OF NCWIT (read slide) These are the 2013 winners from IllinoisMany get scholarships as a result of this, mentoring, job shadows, internships, lots of corporate swag…
  • PART 9: WHAT CAN COUNSELORS DO? (CATHERINE)Keep your eye out for this program we’ve just begun – It’s starting as a camp for middle school kids.
  • PART 9: WHAT CAN COUNSELORS DO? (CATHERINE)TECHNOLOGY UNDERPINS THINGS GIRLS ARE INTERESTED IN. (reference slide.) This pic represents #5, She is working with 3-D motion-capture software that is used in the film industry. We don’t know what the cat is doing.
  • PART 9: WHAT CAN COUNSELORS DO? (CATHERINE)Since Computing is an applied science, it underpins innovations across disciplines.
  • PART 9: WHAT CAN COUNSELORS DO? (CATHERINE)USE LANGUAGE THAT MEETS KIDS WHERE THEY ARE Note: This appears progressively, so read A then show and read B. and then have them vote.TRANSITION TO RESOURCES TOUR. Say: So, we’ve described what you can do, now, here’s how we help you. Provide PD like this, and materials for yourself and for kids.
  • PART 9: WHAT CAN COUNSELORS DO? (CATHERINE)This is the skill set of people who accomplish a lot through computer science. These skills are essential to working on technical teams and to invent new ways of doing things with computers.
  • PART 9: WHAT CAN COUNSELORS DO? (CATHERINE)Talking Points Card – You should have several of these in the packet. It gives you the messages that are shown to work with kids about interests and opportunities. You have several so you can share them with your colleagues or with parents. Use them for the basis of discussion and give them away!
  • PART 9: WHAT CAN COUNSELORS DO? (CATHERINE)Intersecting Pathways Poster– The poster in your C4C kit shows the intersecting routes to careers in computing. Notice that it directs kids to ask you for the Pathway cards that get into details about the kind of work and salaries they can expect.
  • PART 9: WHAT CAN COUNSELORS DO? (CATHERINE)Pathways Cards. These are class sets of cards to use with kids. They consider three routes kids might take to a career in IT. Each of them takes this approach (describe sequence of information).
  • PART 9: WHAT CAN COUNSELORS DO? (CATHERINE)We call this one the C4C Infosheet. It includes much of the information we presented today. Use it as a refresher and share with others.
