In this edWebinar, Jaime Donally, author, speaker, and consultant, will review the basics of AR, while exploring four lesson plans to use in any classroom.
This edWebinar will provide an overview of computational thinking and explore the components of patterning and abstraction in more depth.
In this edWebinar, you’ll learn creative strategies to help you connect robotics to relatable real-world scenarios so that your students carry the learning with them beyond the project and classroom.
Coding and robotics programs in classrooms reflect how integral technology is in our lives. Educators like Angie Kalthoff, Technology Integrationist in St. Cloud, MN, and Ann Bartel, Instructional Technology Specialist in Chilton, WI, teach K-8 students about technology through coding and computer science programs that incorporate the 4 Cs of learning: collaboration, creativity, critical thinking, and communication. In a recent edWebinar, Kalthoff and Bartel explain that they want to coach students and not just tell them what button to push or the correct sequences to move a robot across a mat. By being challenged to take ownership of their learning through design thinking, students grow to understand that it is okay not to get the right answer the first time and that failing is part of the learning process.
In this edWebinar, a technology integrationist and an instructional technology specialist who began with no experience in coding and robotics will show you why they fell in love with coding and robotics, their lessons learned, and best practices for making a program work for you and your students.
In this edWebinar, through personal stories and research findings shared by the presenters, you will see the current gender divide in STEM and discover what educators can do about it.
Two common computer science misconceptions are that it’s just about programming and that only teachers with computer science degrees should teach it. Carrie Willis, Technology Director for Valley Preparatory School and Strategic Outreach Manager for Wonder Workshop, and Caitlin Arakawa, Kindergarten Teacher at Valley Preparatory School, dispel these misconceptions, during a recent edWebinar. They highlighted that soft skills critical to student success in future fields of study such as logic, problem-solving and creativity are integral components of computer science curriculums.
