Code in Every Class
Date & Time
Thursday, June 14, 2018, 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM
It’s an accepted fact that all students need exposure to certain academic disciplines—algebra, world history, chemistry, and probably a Shakespeare play or two. Unfortunately, computer science has not yet risen to must-have status. Given society’s reliance on technology in almost every aspect of modern life, Kevin Brookhouser finds the lack of programming education in schools shocking. Kevin shows teachers how to take matters in their own hands and incorporate programming in what they already teach. Best of all, anyone can do it! In this session, all participants will learn fundamentals of computer programming and walk away having created their own program. We’ll start with writing commands using block coding technology and writing simple programs using CoffeeScript. Teachers will then learn how to make simple and fun branching logic narratives, games, and apps using Google Slides. We’ll then discuss a variety of ways teachers across subject areas can integrate coding into their classrooms starting on Monday.
