Coding in ANY Classroom
This binder was originally developed for business educators. It has been expanded to include coding resources for any teacher, any subject, any grade level.
Should I use QR codes in my classroom?
Have you ever wondered if QR codes were right for your classroom? Take a look through this binder at all the information about QR codes and decide for yourself! Before researching for this project I did not think QR codes were necessary, but I think now I would at least try them our. Enjoy!
Coding for K-5 Teachers and Their Students
This is the "un-Powerpoint" presentation for ITEEA Conference in Dallas, Texas on March 17, 2017. My intent is to share what I have been learning about coding with educators around the globe, so they can add this amazing curriculum to their own elementary classrooms. Secondary educators, administrators, and parents will likely find some useful information here, as well!
Reading and Coding: STREAMing, and streamlining the process
How learning to read and learning to code go hand in hand.
Resources for a presentation at the International Literacy Conference St. Louis, MO July 19, 2015.
Reading and coding go together like peanut butter and jelly. In our pilot of The Hour of Code campaign this past fall, both teachers and students noticed how coding computers and robots correlated to reading. Teachers first made this discovery when planning by design. Then, teachers wondered if the students would make the same connection and wondered if or how the concept would transfer to reading. During the campaign, reading motivation and accuracy increased not only through teacher observation but also through the developmental reading assessments. When teachers saw this gain they could not help but link reading workshop and coding. Stop teaching reading independently and add a real authentic experience.
