An awesome new resources that I came across this fall is the Virtual Family Creative Coding Night Facilitation Guide from Scratch and Chicago Public School's Office of Computer Science.
This guide walks facilitators through ideas about the creative learning mindset, as well as providing guidance related to starter projects, flow of a virtual family coding event, roles and responsibilities of those involved, and ways to create smaller group work sessions and methods for sharing.
From the Scratch website:
Virtual Family Creative Coding Nights bring young people, families, educators, and administrators together online to create and explore using Scratch. The Scratch team collaborated with the Office of Computer Science at Chicago Public Schools to develop and share this guide as a remixable resource for running your own version of the event.
Also, I'm curious to know what kinds of virtual family coding events others are hosting, as well as how they're going! Reply below to share!
