MakeCode: Bring Computational Thinking into Any Classroom
Encourage your students to develop computational thinking skills through engaging hands-on, minds-on classroom activities.
Prepare your students to use today’s digital tools to help solve tomorrow’s problems. Pattern recognition, abstraction, algorithmic thinking, and decomposition are core thinking skills that apply to any subject. Come see how to integrate these components into any content area with Microsoft MakeCode projects and Hacking STEM lessons—hands-on activities that engage students immediately.
This session is for teachers at ALL technology comfort levels.**
OK2Ask are hands-on exploratory workshops, not sit & gets. We highly recommend that you attend using a computer with an updated browser (Chrome or Edge). Those attending on mobile devices may not be able to participate fully and therefore may not receive a certificate. You are welcome to join us on a mobile device, but this may jeopardize your ability to receive CEUs.
As a result of this session teachers will:
Review the fundamentals of Computational Thinking and how they can be applied across K-12 disciplines;
Explore MakeCode and Hacking STEM, two resources that promote Computational Thinking; and
Plan for the use of Computational Thinking in the classroom.
