Computer Coding: Spotlighting Plugged and Unplugged Activities for Developing Logical Thinking and Perseverance

Friday, November 10
8:00 AM - 9:00 AM
Location: 211 A

This spotlight session will share how gifted resource teachers and collaborative partners use plugged and unplugged activities from Code.org's Code Studio, along with other resources, including Wonderworks’ Dash and Dot robots, to teach coding and develop perseverance and logical reasoning skills with gifted students. Participants will be given an annotated list of literature, board games, websites, and a lesson plan model showing how these resources can be combined to challenge gifted students. Presenters will model active learning strategies to engage and encourage participants to bring coding opportunities and practices out of the shadows and into the light.
