About This Workshop

Brian Aspinal

 

Twenty first century learning requires students to create, collaborate and think critically. Progress "STEM's" directly from immediate feedback and a personalized learning platform. Coding forces students to problem solve, make mistakes and overcome barriers because programs can only run if written correctly. In this session, teachers will learn the basics of block based coding and how to make use of mathematical principles to create content of and for learning.

 

In this session, participants will learn about the history and pedagogy of computer science, its importance for the future as well as how to integrate it into existing curriculums. With a focus on 21st century competencies, participants will explore assessment and evaluation while engaging in the process of learning.

  1. 1: Scratching The Surface Scratch is designed especially for ages 8 to 16, but is used by people of all ages. Millions of people are creating Scratch projects in a wide variety of settings, including homes, schools, museums, libraries, and community centres. Scratch was designed with 4Ps in mind - passions, projects, peers and play.
  2. Session 2: Introducing Makey Makey Makey Makey started out as a project that was initiated by two students at MIT Media Lab under the advisorship of Mitch Resnick (Scratch) and is an academic and artistic project. Now it's both a business and a project with thousands of community collaborators, with more joining the ranks of inventors everyday.
  3. Session 3: Design Thinking & Challenges With Makey Makey
    Exploration of https://labz.makeymakey.com/remixes and curriculum connections.
  4. Session 4: Introduction to Micro:Bit The micro:bit was designed to be classroom-friendly from day one. More approachable than just coding, it's a great way to achieve fun, practical results with motivated stu- dents. Coding isn't just for Computing class! The micro:bit has projects that are great for Design Technology, Physics and even Art and Music classes.
  5. Session 5: Design Thinking & Challenges With Micro:Bit Exploration of http://microbit.org/ideas/ with curriculum connections.
