Canada Learning Code is running a virtual conference for teachers next week that will provide opportunities to learn how to bring coding into the curriculum.
TeacherCon is for teachers with coding in their curriculum
From Tuesday, August 9 to Thursday, August 11, participants can join in on webinars and workshops in English and French, connecting coding with larger educational topics like literacy, math and science, and arts.
The three day conference begins with a keynote address by Victoria native Ann Makosinski, an inventor and speaker who tinkered her way to winning Google’s Science Fair with a flashlight that is powered by heat from the human hand.
Teachers will come away from the conference with free lesson plans, ideas on how to conduct assessments, and practical examples of how these resources connect to the curricula being adopted by school boards across Canada.
