Wonderful Ideas To Ignite Collaboration, Creativity and Computational Thinking
Tuesday, May 15, 2018 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm EDT
Presented by Naomi Harm, Strategic Outreach Education Manager, Wonder Workshop; and Angie Kalthoff, Technology Integration Specialist and Code.org Facilitator
Sponsored by Wonder Workshop
Want to hear about some classroom-inspired activities to incite collaboration and creativity? And what if these ideas met computational thinking objectives too? Knowing that the 4 Cs (collaboration, communication, creativity, and critical thinking) are in the forefront of teachers’ minds, Wonder Workshop shares some turnkey ideas inspired by their work in classrooms across the country. They highlight easy-to-replicate no-tech, low-tech, and high-tech K-5 critical thinking ideas that students can tackle individually or in small groups; perfect for end-of-the-school-year activities.
Learn about ways to naturally integrate coding and robotics into your everyday teaching practices. K-5 classroom teachers, tech teachers, media specialists, and librarians, as well as tech coordinators and curriculum leads will benefit from this recorded edWebinar.
