Creating Computing Education Beyond Engineering

Abstract: The term “computer science” was invented as something that should be taught to everyone in order to facilitate learning other subjects and to reduce the danger of having a powerful new technology controlled by only a few. Computing education has not become the democratizing force imagined in the 1960’s. Today, computer science has a narrow definition and is mostly about getting a high-paying technology job. If we want to reach the original and more general goal, we have to change how we teach computing and support alternative end-points for computing education. In this talk, I review the history of “computer science” and its earlier purpose. I describe and demonstrate new kinds of languages, approaches, and courses that broaden accessibility to computing education.
