On October 26th, I facilitated a presentation on computer coding and its value to school and public libraries at the New Jersey Association of School Librarians conference in Long Branch, NJ. Here is the presentation with the many reference links.
On Monday, I had the opportunity to attend and present at TeachMeetNJ 2014 at Richard Stockton College of New Jersey. This edcamp or unconference was a great way to engage with over 500 educators from around New Jersey in a relaxed yet fast-paced day of learning. From 20 apps in 20 minutes to creating Genius Time at school, it was exciting.
For my particular presentation, I used Haiku Deck for the first time. Feedback was positive on the topic of coding and my sincere hope is to have more teachers incorporate computer science into their daily teaching.
Coding for Kids – Created with Haiku Deck, presentation software that inspires
On August 18th, I am headed to TeachMeetNJ 2014 at Stockton State and am excited to discuss coding for kids. TeachMeet is an unconference that brings people together to share knowledge.
It seems that everyone is discussing computer science these days. Who knew that it would be such a hot topic when I first heard about Code.org’s Hours of Code at the AASL conference. This presentation will focus on techniques for bringing coding to students as young as Kindergarten.
