Practice Spaces

A game for teachers to practice empathizing with young people and authentically connecting their strengths and interests to computer science.

 

Originally developed in partnership with Code.org for use in quarterly teacher workshops, the game is openly licensed and anyone is welcome to use it! It includes discussion points for small groups, and links to online discussion forums at the end as well.

Swipe Right for CS is also a research study aimed at detecting bias, where different workshops see the same student profiles but with students of different racial, gender and ethnic identities.
