NCTIES 2015 - bit.ly/codetolearn

Session Description: With the number of free coding resources now available, it can be difficult for teachers to decide where to begin to introduce computer science into their classrooms. During this interactive session, we will explore three of the best websites for an introduction to coding. By the end of the session, you will feel comfortable enough with coding and the resources available to support STEM integration to start coding in your classroom. Participants will have time to assess the available resources and even practice coding! Once students have learned the basics, the possibilities for choosing their own projects to personalize their learning are endless. Come and learn how coding can support project based learning and enhance your students' creativity and critical thinking skills.
