Creative Coding Rotation Stations for K-5 Classrooms
Thursday, January 11, 2018 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm EST
Presented by Naomi Harm, Strategic Outreach Education Manager, Wonder Workshop; and Angie Kalthoff, Technology Integration Specialist and Code.org Facilitator
Sponsored by Wonder Workshop
Looking for some hands-on collaborative activities that meet computer science and digital fluency learning outcomes? Want ways to appeal to various learning styles and skill levels? In this edWebinar, learn about ways to create coding “rotation stations” in your K-5 classroom! From classroom environment to instructional design, you’ll hear about the ways to implement this flexible classroom practice, whether on a daily or weekly basis.
Develop effective models of collaborative group work with these positive classroom management strategies. You’ll also learn ways to engage your students in no-tech, low-tech, and high-tech K-5 computational thinking activities, which they can cycle through in small groups, working at their own pace.
K-5 classroom teachers, tech teachers, media specialists, librarians, plus tech coordinators and curriculum leaders are invited to watch this recorded session. Learn about implementing rotation stations in the classroom.

Join the Coding & Robotics K-8 community to network with educators, participate in online discussions, receive invitations to upcoming edWebinars, view past edWebinars, take a quiz to receive a CE certificate for a past edWebinar, and access free resources.
Wonder Workshop creates engaging, hands-on learning tools, programming languages, and curriculum that bring STEM and coding to life for grades K-8. Robotics fosters critical thinking skills at an early age, encourages creativity, and turns students into makers rather than consumers. Wonder Workshop is the creator of the Dash and Dot robots. Let’s inspire students to be future leaders in technology. Find out more at makewonder.com
