In recent years, diversity in learning environments has become a pivotal topic of conversation for educators. By enhancing underrepresented students' computational thinking skills, it creates more room for future career opportunities. Moving Students of Color from Consumers to Producers of Technology is a comprehensive reference source that provides innovative perspectives on the need for diversity in computer science and engineering disciplines and examines best practices to build upon students' knowledge bases. Featuring coverage on an expansive number of topics and perspectives, such as, computational algorithmic thinking, STEM diversity, and distributed mentorship, this publication is ideally designed for academicians, researchers, and students interested in efforts to broaden participation in computer science careers fields for underrepresented students. © 2017 by IGI Global.
