The MN Coding in the Classroom Summit is a day of learning for educators that focuses theme of Computer Science for All (#cs4all). Hands-on sessions explore ways to integrate computer science, coding, and computational thinking into a variety of curricular areas, from K-12! Featured speakers include educators at elementary, middle, and high school levels. Our goal is to provide a wide range of topics that help educators at all levels of computer science education. Past keynote speakers have featured AnnMarie Thomas, Ph.D. from the University of St. Thomas, School of Engineering and Dr. Maria Gini from the University of MN, Department of Computer Science and Engineering.
Also featured, a Playground demo area of many different devices and technologies to help incorporate computer science into the classroom. New to coding education? This is a great chance to try out many different computer science activities and ask questions to educators who have experience using them in the classroom. Have you been teaching computer science for a while?
Come learn new ways and ideas to integrate computer science into already existing curriculum. The playground area features ideas for lessons and projects for both beginners and those who are more advanced. Lastly, we have poster sessions - informal, hands-on learning opportunities on specific topics.
Information about 2018 Summit will be posted here in January 2018, including submitting a program proposal, poster session idea and registration details.
