9 Questions that Matter - CrossRoads 2015 - Stanford, CA

  1. 1. Nine Questions that Matter
  2. 2. We support the development of high-quality computer science and coding education with a focus on underserved communities.
  3. 3. Infosys Foundation USA hosted its inaugural CrossRoads event at Stanford University. This event, for the first time, convened more than 50 educators, policymakers, and nonprofit leaders to reimagine computer science education in America.
  4. 4. Over the course of two days we employed design thinking principles to discuss how we could address the most pressing topics.
  5. 5. Alan Kay, educator and computer science pioneer, encouraged us to not only re-think the way we teach children but to question the underlying assumptions on which our current education system was built.
  6. 6. However, the day made us think about powerful questions, not premature solutions. And we came up with many thought provoking questions…
  7. 7. How might we make learning computer science more enjoyable and hands-on? How might we make it more immersive and experiential?
  8. 8. How might we balance practicality with creativity as we seek to improve access to computer science education?
  9. 9. How might we inspire children through the spirit of making to become the creators not just the consumers of technology?
  10. 10. How might we embed computer science education within existing, seemingly unrelated, curricula such as art, music, or chemistry?
  11. 11. How might we lower the pressure of grades in coding classes and instead increase engagement whilst delivering more tangible learning?
  12. 12. How might we empower communities as well as classrooms?
  13. 13. How might we enrich technology education with a broader set of perspectives? Ethics and a sense of community are important.
  14. 14. How might we enable mentorship and have it to be valued as much as sponsorship?
  15. 15. How might we learn from the best of the past, but have our children’s future be more than just an increment of it?
