Learn through the senses of your students by engaging in the fundamental building blocks of code. In this workshop teachers will work together to learn how to use Fisher‐Price©’s Code‐a‐pillar™ to engage students in hands‐on coding activities that develop essential critical thinking and academic skills, such as planning a sequence of events, decomposing a problem into a series of steps, and collaborating with others. We will also cover ways to integrate our coding experience with other content areas, such as literacy, math, and science. Throughout this workshop learners will practice the skills of predicting, observing, and collaborating, which scientists and engineers do in their practice on a daily basis to solve problems and make discoveries.
