Teachers Learning Code
Steve Blair, Courtney SchrieterRoom 4
We believe that digital skills are tools of empowerment. The world is changing, and we want Canada to be ready. We’re here to make sure that all people in Canada -- particularly women, girls, people with disabilities, Indigenous youth and newcomers -- have access to the knowledge they need to prosper in our digital world. Our workshops include: Gamemaking with Scratch - Learners will learn how to use coding concepts to create their own game. This lesson will introduce computational thinking in a fun and interactive way with infinite possibilities for customization and subject integration. Introduction to HTML&CSS - Learners will learn how to create their own 1 page website using HTML & CSS, two computer languages, fundamental to the internet. At the end of every workshop we will ensure that educators have the knowledge to implement coding into their lessons as well as direct them towards our repository of pre-made lesson plans and our community of educators to continue collaborating and sharing ideas.
