Pro-D Day – Coding for Your Classroom

Pro-D Day – Coding for Your Classroom


What is Coding for Your Classroom all about?

Coding for Your Classroom will help grade 6-9 teachers learn how to incorporate computer science and coding activities into their classrooms. Content will be focused on easy-to-implement computer science activities appropriate to the grade level and connected to the BC curriculum. The day will begin with “unplugged” activities that promote computational thinking, and then we will dive into exploring coding with easy to use programs!

What are plugged and unplugged activities?

Plugged activities use technology, such as computers or robots. Unplugged activities do not use any technology. They reinforce computational thinking skills that students will use for technology, and in everyday life! This event will include both plugged and unplugged activities.
