Coding in the Elementary Classroom
July 16, 2019 ♦ 6:00pm - 7:30pm ET
Moderators: Stephanie Bass, Melissa Henning and Kevin Bower
Session Description: Discover the world of coding with your elementary students. Learn tech and no-tech strategies for introducing students to the wonder and world of coding and computer programming. Understand the relationship between computational thinking skills and coding and how one develops logical thinking and problem solving while the other supplies the means to develop and apply it. Through hands-on activities using tools designed to activate a concrete understanding of coding, you will be well on your way to begin the journey in learning and teaching coding in your elementary classroom.
As a result of this session teachers will:
- Understand coding and computational thinking are and how aspects of each can be used in the classroom;
- Identify and explore resources to introduce coding into the classroom including unplugged activities; and
- Plan for an activity that introduces coding in your elementary classroom.
