I'm a former teacher of adult English learners and high school students in Kansas City (on both sides of the state line). I will forever claim the Greater Kansas City Writing Project as my professional home, though I now live and work in Oakland, California. My work keeps me focused on digital media and learning. I currently review apps for Common Sense Media and YogiPlay, with an emphasis on apps for learning.

Exploring Computer Science (ECS) is a K-12/university partnership between the Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) and the University of California at Los Angeles (UCLA). ECS was developed by the Computer Science Equity Alliance in response to a UCLA study that examined why so few females and students of color study computer science in high school.
ECS expanded access to Advanced Placement Computer Science courses, with programs in eighteen LAUSD high schools at the beginning of the 2010-2011 school year. Students in the ECS program engage in a curriculum that explores various aspects of computing, including human computer interaction, problem solving, Web design, programming, data modeling, and robotics.
