Here is a summary/highlights of the three workshops I attended today at the CUEBC Conference.
The big one in my mind was "Coding K-12" by Ian Landy. It was about coding, both specifically and generally, in a centres format.
The techie mindset includes being critical, creative, collaborative, and to compose and communicate.
The Centres approach has several features:
Tools (learn) vs. Toys (distract): ask students--is it a tool or a toy?; good check-n
Coding State of Mind (can happen anywhere!)
1:1ish - 1 station per student; scaleable
IT'S NOT EASY

This blog will be dedicated to sharing in three areas: happenings in my classroom and school; analysis and distillation of other educators' wealth of knowledge in various texts; insights from other disciplines and areas of expertise that relate and connect with educational practices.
