Apps, ‘Bots and Code: The New ABC’s in the Elementary Classroom - Kathy Cassidy LIMITED

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Limited Capacity seats available

There is a lot of talk about coding and robotics in education, but why would you want to use them in your elementary classroom?  Are you curious about what is possible? We’ll talk about the “why’s”, the “how’s” and curricular connections.

Imagine the possibilities! 

Downloading the free app ScratchJr by MIT Media Lab ahead of time is suggested.
