This workshop focuses on teaching code and computational thinking. It will equip teachers with the skills needed to integrate code into their classrooms, regardless of what subject they teach.
The workshop will begin with an introduction to computational thinking, Scratch and its role in the classroom. The instructor will demonstrate coding live, while the participants follow along. The final segment of the workshop will involve a number of activities that highlight how Scratch can be used to make connections to the curriculum.
