The K-12 Computing Education Research Resource Center was first envisioned as part of a collaborative National Science Foundation grant with Adrienne Decker (University at Buffalo) and Monica McGill (Knox College). Since then, the Resource Center (at CSEdResearch.org) has grown–both in the data that has been collected and the technical guidance offered to researchers.
In July, 2019, McGill formed a non-profit organization of the same name, CSEdResearch.org. The original NSF grant continues to support the collaborative work of Decker and McGill, while other partners and collaborators have engaged in activities with McGill to support the growth of the non-profit.
To accomplish this, we have adopted the following strategies for accomplishing our mission, vision and goalsd
- Increase the K-12 CS Education Research communities, knowledge of and experiences with producing relevant and rigorous research through education and promotion of high quality educational research practices
- Widely disseminate research data and findings openly using existing and new support systems
- Analyze research findings to determine promising practices that are shared with K-12 Educators
