Feedback from CoderZ presentation with edWeb

Great job! How to break the stigma that computers are only for men. The techniques that Dr. Jones used to help more women become interested in computers. Make it approachable, be a role model,  and provide opportunities. Finding the right fit.”

Feedback from CoderZ presentation with edWeb

This was a good introduction to better understanding the gender gap in computer science.  Dr. Jones was engaging, authentic, and knowledgeable. I am eager to learn more about how I can best support girls in my school district to feel empowered to explore computer science in a systemic way.”

“Hi Dr. Jones! I took your business statistics class at Central Piedmont a couple years ago, while I was transitioning careers. I walked away with a lot from your class. You were the first example of a female “coder” I had ever met, and that was HUGE for me at that time. It has had a profound effect on me, as it helped me realize “people like me code and are really good at it!” It lit a fire in me and I dove into not only learning Salesforce technical practices, but also Java, JavaScript, and HTML, and Salesforce’s object oriented Apex. I am now a trusted Salesforce system admin at my company and have multiple components in production use that I coded! And I am presenting at the local Charlotte Salesforce group next week about how some programming best practices can help in non-programming development. 🤩 I thank you for being YOU. You inspired me in just a few short weeks. Who knows how many people you are inspiring each day! “-Claire, a huge fan who is forever grateful.”

“I would like to thank you for what you have done for DJV.  We have learned so much this year and I have seen my students grow and show so much excitement for anything computer science.”

Asia Stevenson, M.Ed, English 8th grade, Northridge Middle

“Dr. Sharon Jones has been a great asset to my 8th grade English Language Art classes. She introduced us to the computer science world in September and we have been tech-savvy ever since. Technology and literacy are closely associated as we emphasize critical thinking and problem-solving in literature. I had no idea my lessons were tailored to computer science (Dr. Jones pointed out all of my computer science strategies that I already use and we incorporated more).

The biggest misconception is that you have to create something new but Dr. Jones provided an abundance of knowledge and resources. My classes were able to create green screens, podcasts, matches boxes and we even published a book that is currently sold on Amazon. She expanded my mind behind the classroom and I have seen an increase in student engagement and participation. Computer science is our world (my students are social media experts) and my students and I are beyond grateful to have Dr. Jones lead us through the technology world. The skills my students have learned will prepare them to be innovators in technology and lead them to success in our society.”

Lisa Soria, Northeast Middle

“It’s truly amazing to see what our classroom has turned into this year. The plans, structure and motivation in my classroom is something I did not think was possible. Computer science programs help to build interdisciplinary plans to bridge multi-subject lessons. Students have reached a new level of achievement and motivation throughout our entire day. Students are exposed to using THEIR thoughts to lead them to the right answer and use their wrong answers to help get them to the right. No more emotional turmoil when we feel we did something “wrong.” Hands-on learning and technology has engaged student learning and helped close academic gaps for struggling learners,  while simultaneously decreasing problem behaviors in the classroom. Learning has become truly fun.”
