Computational thinking (CT) and coding can help students develop logical thinking, recognize patterns, solve problems by breaking down complex tasks, and more. But what does an elementary classroom look like when it integrates CT through coding projects?
This one-day introductory workshop models a variety of CT concepts and practices through the active creation of multiple Scratch projects. Attendees will unpack the pedagogical, technological, and content knowledge necessary to incorporate coding projects into a classroom, then discuss and apply approaches for creating or modifying integration projects that are customized to your classroom's needs. All of the resources and platforms we will discuss are 100% free to use and require no prior coding experience.
