Collected, analyzed, and grouped over 300 computer science K-12 learning objectives from teachers and community.

Mapped community input to the Advanced Placement CS Princples and Scratch Computational Thinking frameworks.

Leveraged the work of the research community to develop CS Perspectives - Explorer, Creator, Innovator and Citizen - to provide teachers with a flexible learning progression that wasn't rigidly mapped to grades.

Developed, managed or contracted development of all written and video content.
