Hour of Code is an opportunity for each and every student to try computer science for one hour, yet did you know you can also teach computer science activities all year-round?
On December 3, 2019 we joined this engaging block party webinar to discover, learn, and celebrate new ideas of classroom-inspired CS activities to encourage collaboration and creativity amongst K-8th grade students. Our collaborative group of dynamic STEM educators modeled and highlighted easy-to-replicate no-tech, low-tech, and advanced-tech K-8 CS activities to integrate coding and robotics learning experiences into everyday teaching practices. Many CS templates and tools were provided so participants could try out these new ideas in their classrooms. Viewers also received immediate access to FREE “Hour of Code” computer science resources from some favorite coding and robotic educational providers!
K-8 classroom teachers, tech teachers, media specialists, and librarians, as well as tech coordinators and curriculum leads were the intended audience for this CS for All Teachers webinar.
Facilitators: Naomi Harm is a CS for All Ambassador, LEGO Master Educator, and STEM Innovation Specialist. Angie Kalthoff is Program Manager at Early Childhood Technology Tufts University. Jon Samuelson is a Middle Educator Technology Integration Coach at Beaverton, OR schools. Amy LaRonge and Kara Bunkelman are technology integration specialists from Howard Suamico School District in Green Bay, WI.
