Bring Coding to Your ES Classroom
There is significant momentum in education today to teach coding.  As with anything that we add into the curriculum we are faced with questions of:

  • How does this enhance learning?

  • Does it fit into my school’s standards?  

  • How do I get started?

This session will focus on these questions. The session will be geared towards participants with varied levels of coding ability (beginners are welcome) who work with kids from K-6. Participants will learn how to get started teaching coding to elementary kids and how to use it to enhance what is already being taught. Participants will look at the benefits of teaching coding to elementary kids. There will be unplugged learning activities to introduce coding concepts as well as hands on learning opportunities to work with Scratch, Scratch Jr and Beebots. By the end of the session you will have enough knowledge of coding to begin integrating it into your teaching, opening creative doors for your students like never before.
