Beine-Bowden - Coding in the Early Years: Setting the Foundation

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Attendees will explore why our youngest learners are at an optimal age for learning the foundations of coding. I will review concepts that are essential to understanding what it means to code and program and showcase how 3 to 8 year-olds can learn those concepts in fun ways that make sense. We will brainstorm and back channel all ideas generated; come to engage your brain! The session draws on the work of Dr. Seymour Papert and the recent book, Coding as a Playground, by Dr. Marina Bers.
