Are you interested in having your students learning to code?
Grade 4-7 teachers can learn how to engage their students in coding unit, based on provincial curriculum and using a critical inquiry process. In this coding unit, students learn fundamental coding skills and create a video game through this engaging, student-driven, unit. The Coding Quest facilitator will focus on STEAM education, 21st Century and computational thinking, while integrating learning in: Science, Technology, Mathematics, Language Arts, Visual Arts and Social Studies. This Coding unit culminates in a local Arcade hosted by Coding Quest and the Curriculum and Learning Team.
Coding Quest has a flexible curriculum framework that can be tailored to teachers’ preferences and levels of expertise. Teachers are assisted as they deliver an adjustable framework, through participation in this workshop and supported by online resources via The Learning Partnership’s eLearning Moodle.
