Beneficiaries are entities which stand to benefit from commitments made. They include any youth, teacher, school or private organization, family, out of school organizations, and others who benefit from commitments made for any given year. Others include community members, researchers, networks and other categories that do not fit into the six initial categories. Counts for beneficiaries are reported by the organization when making a commitment for that years CSforALL Summit.
Teachers or educators include anyone who teaches children K through 12th grade Computer science subjects. They can work for public or private schools, private organizations, after school networks, etc.
Out of school time is any CS education which happens outside of school day education. CS can be most effectively taught for all students when they encounter learning both in school time and out of school time. In fact, CS is already happening in OST but is often called something else: i.e. Robotics, Girls who Code, Minecraft, Scratch, Makerspaces, Fab Labs, and digital storytelling. OST providers create opportunities for interest driven real-world learning, problem-solving, creativity, experimentation, and flexibility to nurture the passion for and interest in computer science in our youth.
Organizations committed describes the organizations which have committed to make a commitment Summit. Making a commitment gives organizations an opportunity to announce a new effort on a national stage which can be leveraged to bring new partners to the table, increase impact, and grow the footprint of engaged stakeholders. More info on commitments can be found on the Summit website
Students and youth include any person in grades K-12. Computer science is a fun way to create games, apps, animations, art, or stories using computers. Students learn in schools, outside the classroom, in community groups and more.
School districts are the unit of change toward creating rigorous, inclusive and sustainable K-12 computer science education. The CSforALL community works closely with schools and districts to provide curriculum, professional development, best practices, and research to support CS implementation at the K-12 level.
Some commitments are made by organizations with a National scale. The button labeled National represents the commitments falling under this category. It does not represent a total sum of the commitments.
Families represent the support system behind each student. Parents or guardians and siblings all come together to help a student learn. Families served means events are directed at family units, not just students.
When schools are being helped on a individual basis, we count them as single schools
Other includes all other categories and groups served through commitments. These usually include groups such as community members: those who aren't teachers or students, researchers and networks.
