If you attend the live session, you’ll be emailed a CE certificate within 24 hours of the edWebinar. If you view the recording and would like a CE certificate, join the Coding & Robotics K-8 community and go to the edWebinar Archives folder to take the CE quiz.
To help students take ownership of their own learning, many educators are integrating more voice and choice in their classrooms. With voice, students are given the chance to express their ideas and creativity. With choice, students are given opportunities to personalize their learning experience and make educated decisions.
How can we integrate more voice and choice when teaching coding and robotics? In this edWebinar, Charlotte Cheng, Curriculum Content Manager at Wonder Workshop, will explore tips and tricks on how to incorporate activities and strategies so that students can take ownership of their coding experience.
We’ll then see how Wonder Workshop utilizes these strategies in their new middle school Applied Robotics Curriculum through activity menus, project pathways, and differentiated difficulties.
Come learn about the design thinking behind the Applied Robotics Curriculum and pick up general strategies on how to add more voice and choice in your school as well! Elementary and middle school teachers and school and district leaders will benefit from attending this session. There will be time to get your questions answered after Charlotte’s presentation.
