What is the difference between 'novel' and 'graphic novel'?
Sharin Jacob
45:22
This is such an amazing project!! Is it appropriate for upper elementary students. If so, could you suggest ways to make it more accessible to elementary students?
Steven Saus

I am planning on purchasing 50 books to use with my Exploring Computer Science classes. Is there a study guide to go with the book that I can use with my students?
Shaina Glass (Shay-nuh) she/her
46:34
cool. thanks!
Michelle Choi

You can learn more about the book, rewatch the video trailer, and pre-order at poweronbook.com
Steven Saus
48:59
Have you done any metrics on the impact of using this resource, or have you considered adding how to do such to the study guide so that individual educators can see (and demonstrate to purse-string holders) the impact of the book?
Steven Saus
49:15
(This is my jam; my master's was assessing the impact of anti-bigotry efforts in a college setting)
Christy Crawford

Will this recording be available later?
Yan Timanovsky
51:50
Yes!
Christy Crawford

TY!
Yasin Asadi
52:39
it is very good idea graphic novel but it have to target the major issues and try to connect the students in meaning, I guess most studnets like that
Steven Saus
52:44
This can be answered afterward/offline: I would be interested in at least discussing (or more) assessing metrics. steven@stevesaus.com
Yasin Asadi
54:22
I thinks right now students need a clarifying kind of book or novel to torch the unclear road for them
Elaine Raybourn
55:09
With respect to widening the reach and impact: Have you considered deploying your graphic novel and resources with a transmedia learning approach?
Phillip Eaglin
56:26
Is there a link to more info about the novel and how it can be purchased?
Lipi Gupta
56:33
I work with a Chicago Public School math teacher to teach a unit about how AI tech can enforce systems of power. I'm really excited to include this book into our unit! Can you mention if there are grants available for purchasing copies for the students?

I am excited to see how the students will be able to identify with the stories that will be presented. I look forward to engaging my students and my children in reading this graphic novel.

Hi, this is very interesting! I’m a PhD Candidate studying computer science at Auburn University, AL currently researching Education for elementary students especially for under-resourced schools and underrepresented groups. I’ll like to reach out to y’all to discuss further. Please leave me an email address I can contact. Here’s mine: ora0002@auburn.edu

There's has been a question about the books' accessibility-- for students with disabilities.
Karen North
01:12:12
Have you created connection to NSF BPC requirement? And CIS huge grant?
Michelle Choi

Max Garzon
01:13:29
Q: How do u expect Power to change the mindset of CS teachers? Seems to me this is the weak link here ..
Diane Levitt
01:13:40
Translated in Spanish, Mandarin? (Sorry if I missed the answer to this question)
Steven Saus
01:14:47
That is part of the assessment portion.
Karen North
01:15:05
Jane, who is the Village? Still same mindset roadblocks since we are at the White House together.
Max Garzon
01:16:18

please unmute
Yan Timanovsky
01:17:27
Hyejeong, you need to unmute yourself to speak--you should have received a prompt.
Steven Saus
01:18:07
Oh, that was meant as a comment, not a question. My apologies. I am emailing y'all about that right now.
Yan Timanovsky
01:19:15
If anyone wants to stay one for a minute for any debrief, I can stop the recording but you can stay on and wait for attendees to file out.
Shanti' Coaston (Shawn-tay)
01:19:26
I can stay
Lily Mora (CSTA | she/her)
01:19:47
I can also hang around after
Jean Ryoo
01:20:55
I also want to add that a graphic novel can only do so much, and that is why we are so excited about collaborating with educators on an educator guide! Teachers are key to the effort to shift minds, and we all are always working hard to grow and learn regardless of our ages
Karen North
01:21:00
Could you add Microsoft TEALS support and interns in the classroom to build on the village?
Steven Saus
01:21:03
Okay cool; I did not wish to steal focus.
Bill Pyne
01:21:17
I passed the book url to a contact of mine at the Rhode Island Department of Education. I work with them as an industry mentor for hs students interested in cs. Best wishes, the idea is fantastic.
