An Introduction to Coding and Computational Thinking in the Classroom|

On October 22nd, 2016 Lighthouse Labs, Kids Code Jeunesse and CUEBC will introduce over 200 teachers to basic computational thinking and coding skills.

This is Code Class

Code Class is an initiative to inspire and introduce educators to computational thinking for the classroom. Teachers are a daily source of empowerment for their students, and Code Class aims to give educators the tools they need to inspire and encourage growth through technology. This free, full-day workshop is designed specifically for K-12 educators. It will focus on supporting teachers and students by fostering their understanding of computational thinking, technology and basic coding.

No coding experience?
No problem. Code Class is designed for beginners.

But, what is computational thinking, and why does it matter?

Computational thinking is problem solving; it’s understanding larger structures with both human and technological systems. It could be as simple as following a recipe, or as advanced as coding a website. Computational thinking is to computers as astronomy is to telescopes; it's about how we conceptualize information, and how we put those concepts into practice.

As teachers, you provide students with the skills to navigate an ever-changing academic landscape, where digital literacy has become a necessity. Code Class will introduce teachers to the building block of computational thinking through coding in an accessible, beginner friendly format, blending the worlds of tech and education to create amazing outcomes.

Computational Thinking

It’s not a subject. It's an intellectual competency like critical thinking, creativity and problem solving.

Inspire Creation

Because it’s necessary that we inspire the next generation of Canadians to create rather than consume technology.

Educational Strategies

By providing teachers with the proper tools and resources, it’s easy to incorporate technology into the classroom and inspire students.
