Young Computational Thinkers: Unplugged Coding in K-6

TechnologyScienceMathematics and Numeracy
Half Day Workshop
9:00 AM, Thursday 13 Feb 2020 (2 hours 45 minutes)
Location : St. Mary's High School - S107

Educators are increasingly being tasked with teaching the skills of coding and computational thinking to young students. This hands-on, interactive workshop aims to develop an understanding of computational thinking and the related skills and competencies through the exploration of relevant, ready-to-use activities that connect to a variety of curriculum areas.

Through participation in this workshop, educators will:

• Engage in unplugged activities that focus on developing students’ skills of decomposition, abstraction, pattern recognition, algorithmic thinking and logic;

• Gain access to the activities that are explored, along with materials lists and supporting resources, so they can complete the activities with their students;

• Discover how to build upon what they already do in their classrooms to develop the foundational knowledge students need to become computational thinkers; and,

• Collaborate with colleagues and engage in meaningful discussions related to digital literacy and computational thinking
