This coding themed pro-d day will help grade 4–9 teachers learn how to incorporate computer science and coding activities into their classrooms. Content will be focused on easy-to-implement computer science activities appropriate to the grade level and connected to the BC curriculum.
The day will include a variety of activities. Possible topics include off-line computational thinking activities, scratch, micro:bits, 3D printers, arduinos, and robotics - and it's up to you registrants to help us decide during sign-up! Regardless of specific topics and technology, there will be plugged an unplugged activities available to explore.
What are plugged and unplugged activities?
Plugged activities use technology, such as computers or robots. Unplugged activities do not use any technology. They reinforce computational thinking skills that students will use for technology, and in everyday life! This event will include both plugged and unplugged activities.
