In this edWebinar, explore languages from early computing like Fortran and Logo and more recent ones like Processing, Scratch, Python.
STEAM lessons offer educational benefits beyond technological literacy, such as collaboration, creativity, and critical thinking. Educators who incorporate STEAM into the classroom are preparing students now for jobs that don’t exist yet by giving them confidence in problem-solving, noted Dr. Azadeh Jamalian, Adjunct Assistant Professor at Teachers College, Columbia University, Head of Education Strategy at littleBits. For many educators, though, blending STEAM with traditional subjects can still seem daunting. During the edWebinar “Bringing Hands-On Coding and STEAM into Your District or Classroom,” Dr. Jamalian offered attendees insights into four key factors that can support successful STEAM integration.
In this edWebinar, Dr. Azi Jamalian, Head of Education Strategy at littleBits, discusses the need for creativity, collaboration, communication, and critical thinking skills, and how we can engage girls and boys in STEM through invention-based learning.
In this edWebinar, presenters from Wonder Workshop share how K–8 classrooms can bring coding to the canvas and provide students with tangible ways to explore, learn and delight in computational drawing with tools.

In this edWebinar, Dr. Azadeh Jamalian discusses best practices for bringing hands-on coding and STEAM into your school and review guidelines on coding.
This year during the annual Computer Science Education Week, educators and students around the world participated in the Hour of Code, an event designed to demystify and engage educators and students in coding. What are some ways to get started with coding, for an Hour of Code or afterwards? Kelly Knight, STEAM Coordinator at Riverside Presbyterian Day School, Jacksonville, FL, presented ideas and tips in “Get Ready for Hour of Code.”
While coding is an essential 21st century language, coding alone won’t be enough to prepare today’s students for tomorrow’s careers. What students are able to DO with coding is what matters. Jon Samuelson, Innovation Strategist at Beaverton School District in Beaverton, OR, presented tips and tricks for student involvement in the recent edWebinar, “Coding + STEAM: Getting Students Future Ready.”
In this edWebinar Kelly Knight, STEAM Coordinator at Riverside Presbyterian Day School, shares her tips, tricks, and tools for making Hour of Code epic.
In this edWebinar, Alfonso Mendoza explains how he introduced a comprehensive computational thinking and coding program with his students.
