Teach Kids to Code

Description:

What: Spotlight

Led by: Jackie Chambers

When: Week 4, Thursday 18 August, 2016

Time: 5:00pm – 7:00pm

Where: Cowandilla Primary School

Details: The best reason why your students need to learn how to code is not for building websites or mobile apps, but for problem solving, critical thinking, understanding and making use of all the information surrounding us.
Now that we are warming up to the idea that we must teach computer science or “coding” in our schools, the next question is “Where do you start?”
In this workshop we will explore the Digital Technologies curriculum and look at ways of developing skills. Starting with sequencing we will look at how Bee-Bots and Pro-Bots can be used to support emerging programming skills. The use of iPad tools such as Kodable, LightBot, Tynker and online visual programs Scratch will be examined in addition to unplugged activities all linked to the Australian Curriculum outcomes.

Cost: $20 Members, $40 Non-members

Note: Please bring your laptop and iPad
