    Seven instructors at five institutions adopted process-oriented guided inquiry learning (POGIL) activities for their first-year courses. These POGIL activities were designed to prompt students to reflect on the relevance of the curriculum to their own lives. Students were significantly more comfortable with computers after taking the POGIL courses, even compared to students taking the same course ... View full abstract»

    Previous research has suggested that access and exposure to computing, social supports, preparatory privilege, a sense of belonging in computing, and a computing identity all contribute to women pursuing computing as a field of study or intended career. What we know less about is what keeps young women persisting in computing despite the obstacles they encounter. This article describes findings fr... View full abstract»

    The computer science (CS) education field is engaging in unprecedented efforts to expand learning opportunities in K-12 CS education, but one group of students is often overlooked: those with specific learning disabilities and related attention deficit disorders. As CS education initiatives grow, K-12 teachers need research-informed guidance to make computing more accessible for students who learn... View full abstract»

    On the eve of exascale computing, traditional wisdom no longer applies. High-performance computing is gone as we know it. This article discusses a range of new algorithmic techniques emerging in the context of exascale computing, many of which defy the common wisdom of high-performance computing and are considered unorthodox, but could turn out to be a necessity in near future.

    The Discrete Event Systems Specification (DEVS) formalism has been widely disseminated in this magazine and elsewhere for its applicability to computational science and engineering. While research in parallel and distributed simulation has been active in the past several decades, the utility of many techniques for high-performance DEVS simulation has been limited. Recent research has shown that th... View full abstract»
