Yang, Hui; Codding, Diane; Mouza, Chrystalla; Pollock, Lori – TechTrends: Linking Research and Practice to Improve Learning, 2021
In this work we examine youth learning in an informal computing program implemented through a library-university partnership. In particular, we introduce and illustrate a culturally responsive computing framework which served as a foundation for the design of the program. Subsequently, we examine youth collaboration as well as affective and…
