All B.Ed. candidates at the University of Ottawa Faculty of Education are invited to a special, FREE day of learning about CODING in the CLASSROOM! Generously financed by the Faculty of Engineering Outreach Programs, this day is specially designed for teacher candidates. We’ll begin with an overview of coding as a digital literacy, and a quick presentation of the fundaments of computational thinking. We’ll also offer ideas and evidence-based recommendations for teaching disciplinary content through coding. Next, we’ll break out into session where we can explore several tools that teachers can use to introduce coding and computational thinking in their classrooms. After lunch, participants will all learn to code in Python, a super useful coding language that will open up new possibilities for innovation in your classroom. This is a Bring Your Own Device event, but we will have Beebots, Ozobots, Chromebooks, and CARLRobots for everyone to play with. Focus will be on exploring possibilities and learning new skills. There are only 50 spots available, so sign up early! Thanks to our funders, we’ll be able to offer everyone lunch and provide all participants with a personalized certificate of completion.
