Taking the Next Step with Coding

Taking the Next Step with Coding

Paul AllisonRoom K3260

Join us for an interactive workshop designed to empower elementary educators with practical strategies for integrating computer science into their teaching across subject areas. We will explore curriculum-aligned activities that incorporate block-based (Scratch, Micro:bit) and text-based coding (Python).

We will also unlock the power of open data and explore how open datasets can be used across subject areas to bridge the gap between classroom learning and real-world applications. Through hands-on activities, educators will experience the transformative potential of open data, empowering students to apply their learning in authentic contexts that have a positive impact on their communities.

The focus of this workshop will be on designing learning experiences which make meaningful cross-curricular connections with coding and math, while equipping students with foundational computational thinking and engineering design skills.
