Technology use and needs in Latina/o communities

These series of studies focus on diverse cultural approaches to learning computer science and use of technology in Latino-heritage households and Schools.

Although there is an increase in teaching computer science in schools, we still see a gap in opportunities to learn computer science across in Latina/o and Black communities. Similarly, women are often less likely to be encouraged to pursue these opportunities. These set of studies focus on understanding the existing inequity in learning computer sciences and digital technology skills. In an effort to build on the cultural strengths that children bring to learning computer science, we also study the use of technology in home settings.
