Imagine It: Phase 4 Thinking about my ImagineIT project and problems that may arise, I feel that the most prevalent is the recurring problem of the Stereotype Threat and the Computer Science Pipeline (Margolis, p. 87). I fear that my students will be driven into believing the stereotype that Latinos are not meant to highly achieve on assignments related to technology and end up becoming self-fulfilling prophecies. In order to prevent this from happening, I need to set high standards and expectations for them, and become comfortable with technology myself. I would probably say that I am more fearful of my incompetence at providing the high level of technological instruction that they need, than of them not having the confidence in themselves. There is a predisposed notion in our culture that technology is difficult to teach and to learn. I continue to struggle with this obstacle. There’s a wonderful quote from the book, Stuck in the Shallow End, “If we think about school environments as an illustrated book in which students look to see themselves, we have to ask, what story is being told, and who is included in the illustrations?” (Margolis, p. 67). I want to take part in positively illustrating this book with my students as the main characters.
