Early Years Educators Digital Literacy Series
As an Early Years Educator, this virtual interactive workshop series will show you how to utilize unplugged coding activities to help learners expand their knowledge and competencies around computational thinking skills and global competencies.
After each workshop, you are provided with relevant, ready-to-use activities to take back to your classrooms and centres. These activities are housed within this Canvas course for you to download and use.
Each of the seven workshops provides Early Years Educators with foundational learning in Computational Thinking and Unplugged Coding. Participants will work together to perform an unplugged coding activity that they will feel confident bringing to their classroom in person or online.
By the end of this on-demand webinar, you will:
- Facilitate unplugged coding activities that focus on developing the skills of computational thinking and global competencies;
- Utilize the activities, materials lists and supporting resources from the workshop to complete the activities with your learners;
- Build upon what you already do in their classrooms and to develop the foundational knowledge students need to become computational thinkers;
- Collaborate with colleagues and engage in meaningful discussions related to digital literacy and computational thinking.
Let's Talk Science facilitators will walk you through seven virtual interactive workshops. To complete the course and earn your badge and certificate, you will have to complete a reflection question after each workshop.
This course is suitable for educators teaching Early Years and Kindergarten.
Each workshop recording is one hour in length. The reflection question and survey will take 15-20 minutes to complete.
