Coding is a necessary skill for the 21st century. You and your students can learn how to code within minutes using a simple programming language, Scratch. With Scatch, you will be able to:
-- implement coding in the classroom while teaching content and meeting state standards;
-- enhance teaching and learning while students learn to create their own academically rich internet content;
-- enable students to demonstrate content understanding by making their own; and
-- teach and apply Common Core math skills through the creation of games, stories and videos.
You will leave with several examples of your own code that you can use in your classroom, plus "unplugged" activities that support both state standards and computational thinking. This workshop is applicable to elementary through high school grade levels. Teachers may want to bring their own laptops to become comfortable with the interface on their own computers, but computers will be provided at the workshop.
