    • Designing surveys and sharing data with a wide range of stakeholders results in a deeper understanding of the data from multiple perspectives.
  • Article: ‘I’m not just a mom’: Parents as creators, collaborators, and learners in creative computing by Ricarose Roque 
    • Social support from parents can play an important role in engaging and sustaining young people’s participation in computing. The authors identified many supportive roles for parents, including collaborating with their children on projects, providing resources and finding new opportunities.
  • Webinar Recording: Listen, Learn, Lead webinar by Flamboyan Foundation
    • Speakers discuss what they are hearing through their ongoing work with families, particularly their Black and Brown families facing the intersecting crises of racism and COVID-19.
