E103: Computer Science and Coding in the Classroom and Library

1:30 p.m. - 2:30 p.m.
Gretchen LeGrand, Executive Director, Code in the Schools
Maya Bery, Library Media Specialist, Carlisle Public School

Computer science education is troublesomely lacking from most K–12 schools, despite the fact that there is a high and growing demand for jobs in the field. A major barrier is that educators feel inadequately equipped to teach it. Our first speaker in this two-part session explores ways to turn your library into a computer science exploration space for students. No prior computer science education knowledge required! Our second speaker teaches participants about Hour of Code, Tynker, and Scratch–resources designed to introduce students to coding. Come get a sense of how each program works, learn why coding is a valuable skill, and get ideas on how to integrate coding into the curriculum and classroom.
