More than just an Hour of Code

A session at BIT15 - Bring IT,Together 2015

Friday 6th November, 2015

10:00am to 10:50am (EST)

Programming, iterating and making are three experiences that students today are interested in learning. How can you co-learn with your students to prepare them to survive and thrive in a future full of the internet of things to the internet of everything? (BTW - You don't have to be an expert!)
This session will be beneficial for educators interested in specific and practical strategies, projects and resources for integrating and implementing programming and computational thinking in their classroom. Emphasis for this session will be on primary and junior students using visual tools like Scratch, Lightbot, Tynker and a vast amount of resources at code.org as well as externals like Sphero and Makey Makey.

Some of strategies for implementation explored will be:
1. Planning and implementing Computer Science week + Hour of Code activities
2. Creating partnerships between mentor coders and beginner coders
3. Integrating programming into all areas of the curriculum
4. Leading and creating a maker and coder club
