Code Class is an initiative to inspire and introduce educators to computational thinking for the classroom. Teachers are a daily source of empowerment for their students, and Code Class aims to give educators the tools they need to inspire and encourage growth through technology. This free, full-day workshop is designed specifically for K-12 educators. It will focus on supporting teachers and students by fostering their understanding of computational thinking, technology and basic coding.
Computational thinking is problem solving; it’s understanding larger structures with both human and technological systems. It could be as simple as following a recipe, or as advanced as coding a website. Computational thinking is to computers as astronomy is to telescopes; it’s about how we conceptualize information, and how we put those concepts into practice.
As teachers, you provide students with the skills to navigate an ever-changing academic landscape, where digital literacy has become a necessity. Code Class will introduce teachers to the building block of computational thinking through coding in an accessible, beginner friendly format, blending the worlds of tech and education to create amazing outcomes.
Tickets are held for CUEBC members until Friday, Oct 14 at 3pm after which, any leftover will be available for other teachers.
