Coding Academy for Grades 3-6

Coding for All!  Coding is a language that all students need to have experiences.  Within this long-term academy, participants will learn how to incorporate coding into their day-to-day lessons.  

Teaching coding doesn’t have to be one more thing.  It can be integrated into lessons to increase student engagement, learning and 21st century skills.  By integrating coding into your instruction, students will learn key collaboration, creativity and critical thinking skills.  Students will learn how to problem solve with fun and engaging activities. 

There are different tools that teachers can use to introduce coding even on a tight budget.  Join this year long academy to learn how you too can introduce your students to coding!  The academy will include 3 after school sessions and one day of the METC conference.  During each of the after school sessions, participants will get hands-on with different tools available to use within their classrooms.  Teachers will also experience “unplugged” activities that they could implement right away.
