Coding for Your Classroom K - 3

The University of British Columbia via edX

Overview

This course is designed for educators to learn about ways to teach computational thinking logic to their students through fun, hands-on activities. The goal is for teachers to feel more confident with coding concepts and activities and to be able to create their own. This course will explore what computational thinking is and why it is important to teach it and introduce it to students at a young age, so we have more diversity in our technology fields in the future. Educators will leave this course knowing that they will be able to incorporate coding and develop students’ digital literacy through minor changes in their classrooms. Additionally, we aim to break barriers that teachers may face in their classrooms by providing participants with resources that develop these skills without the use of technology. At the end of the course, you will be provided with enough resources to begin to bring coding into your classroom start to feel confident creating your own!
