This week at the iSchool

iSchoolers in the News

We welcomed almost 500 new iSchoolers this week! Here’s a short story from our website breaking down the numbers in each class.

Associate Professor Andy Ko recently was awarded more than $1.7 million in National Science Foundation grants for a pair of research projects, one of them in partnership with George Mason University. The research will look into how developers — both novices and experts — learn and master coding.

Ph.D. student Martez Mott appeared on KOMO radio this week to talk about his research into making touchscreens more accessible. You can listen to the report here.

Informatics student Mayowa Aina talked to KNKX radio about her experience as a black woman on campus. In a conversation with Communications Associate Professor Ralina Joseph, she talked about finding a way to become more comfortable when black students make up less than 3 percent of the UW student body.

Professor David Levy took a walk down memory lane at his elementary school recently, making for a charming piece in the New Yorker.

The Cascadia Urban Analytics Cooperative, a partnership between the UW and the University of British Columbia that’s led by the iSchool’s Bill Howe, released a video about the project. CUAC applies data science to urban social issues. Check out the video:
