Computer Science For All (CS4ALL) is a collaborative research project between Rochester Institute of Technology, Auburn University, Carnegie Mellon University, and TERC funded by NSF CE 21 awards CNS-1151542 (PI Stephanie Ludi), CNS-1151713 (PI Daniela Marghitu), CNS-1151980(PI Dave Touretzky), and CNS-1152003(PI Debra Bernstein).
CS4ALL proposes the initial stages of a year-long iterative process to develop an evidence-based, pedagogically-sound computing trajectory for students in middle school through early college. The project is based on a novel three-stage model of programming instruction using the Microsoft Kodu, Alice, and Lego NXT-G programming frameworks.
The CS4ALL curriculum was built upon the three step-ladder adaptive model (using Kodu, Alice, Lego NXT-G and Lego Tetrix programming frameworks) developed since 2005 by PI Daniela Marghitu and her Laboratory for Education and Assistive Technology (LEAT) K12 research and outreach team in which students with varying abilities and experience level learn any of these three software frameworks and progress at their own pace from one to another.
