Teaching Teachers to Code

Do you want to integrate coding into your classroom, but you really have no idea what coding really is or how to do it? This workshop will give you the basic tools and skills to feel comfortable with entry level coding for any grade level. We will start from scratch by learning drag and drop programming and computational thinking, then progress to text based programming and subject specific implementation. Teachers will leave this workshop armed with foundational coding skills and ideas for integrating coding into the curriculum.
