Teachers Learning Code: Learn How to Introduce Coding in your Classroom
Feb 19, Vancouver, BC
Teachers Learning Code is for educators who want to inspire kids to be builders not just consumers - of technology through coding activities and challenges. Whether your a teacher in a classroom, a program coordinator at a community centre, a home-schooling parent or a Girl Guide troop leader - we've put together a comprehensive how-to guide, lesson planning tool and lessons to help you teach kids to code. You will have access to our content and training support - to help you to foster an entire generation to use critical thinking, imagination and technology skills to solve problems and build a better future. We've combined our experiences teaching thousands of youth across the country to code, our tips and tricks to get started, resources to familiarize yourself with code, plus lots of easy to follow and even easier to implement coding activities to empower and teach the future generation of technologists across Canada. Let's shape how technical education is introduced in schools across the country - together!
