Early Introduction of Computer Science Educatio...

Computer Science (CS) has a large underrepresentation of females and racial minority (Hispanic and African American) populations in today's education intuitions and workforce. Public health workers and companies have reviewed the consequences of this underrepresentation. Although a promise to incorporate more STEM education in schools the large gap is still prevalent. Multiple internal and external factors including allostatic load and a leaky pipeline contribute to a large underrepresentation of minorities in CS. Implementing CS education early and through multiple layers of the Social Ecological Model (SEM) shows promise for an increased interest. Programs like the Google Code Corps can create long-term improvements and set up student success through capacity building activities. However, proper mentorship and continuing assessments and motivating are necessary for overall program success and creating a sustainable impact on both minorities and the CS workforce.

ggf. zzgl. Versand

An accessible illustrated introducton to the networks we use every day, from Facebook and Google to WiFi and the Internet What makes WiFi faster at home than at a coffee shop? How does Google order search results? Is it really true that everyone on Facebook is connected by six steps or less? The Power of Networks answers questions like these for the first time in a way that all of us can understand. Using simple language, analogies, stories, hundreds of illustrations, and no more math than simple addition and multiplication, Christopher Brinton and Mung Chiang provide a smart and accessible introduction to the handful of big ideas that drive the computer networks we use every day. The Power of Networks unifies these ideas through six fundamental principles of networking. These principles explain the difficulties in sharing network resources efficiently, how crowds can be wise or not so wise depending on the nature of their connections, why there are many layers in a network, and more. Along the way, the authors also talk with and share the special insights of renowned experts such as Google’s Eric Schmidt, former Verizon Wireless CEO Dennis Strigl, and “fathers of the Internet” Vint Cerf and Bob Kahn.
