Digital Diner @ The TIES Playground: Coding/Programming

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

There is a global movement to include coding in the classroom, fueled by the idea that every student should have the opportunity to learn computer science. Initiatives like Hour of Code are introducing tens of millions of students to computational thinking, and there are many other programs and initiatives that are helping teachers bring coding to the classroom. This portion of the playground will feature educators involved with varied coding programs and age groups. Talk with them and leave with ways to implement coding in your school!
