Target Audience: Grades 1-6 Teachers, pre service teachers, and educational assistants

Computational Thinking involves logic, abstraction, algorithms, pattern recognition and decomposition. Our students may already have some of these skills, but how can we teach these more explicitly, and where do we start? This session has two parts. 

First, we will explore some basics of computational thinking and practical tools for bringing it into the classroom. Then, get started with Scratch, an online coding program which utilises ‘block coding’ to program stories, games and interactive experiences. Participants will be able to use the Scratch program right away and get ideas of how to introduce and engage their students in the classroom.
