Coding in the Classroom: Lessons Learned
Juliet Waters, Chief Knowledge Officer, Kids Code JeunesseMain Room
Since 2013, Kids Code Jeunesse (KCJ) has been working alongside educators across Canada to develop feasible, classroom tested strategies and lesson plans for both learning and teaching the fundamentals of code. KCJ has held teacher training workshops with thousands of Ontario educators across the province, exploring questions like:
How do you teach when you don’t know the answer?
How can I help my students get unstuck when they seem to be learning faster than I am?
What are the essential concepts and practices that kids must master to be prepared for further learning?
Juliet Waters will share the lessons learned over the course of this journey and how teachers can harness the power of code to enrich their learning, not only in math, but across the curriculum.
