VSTE Goes Green: Over the years we’ve made an effort to reduce the amount of paper waste that gets accumulated by reducing the scope of the printed program. This year we will provide a printed conference program with only a summary schedule of the sessions available during each breakout session. For the full detailed listing of each session we encourage attendees to make use of our online schedule here which will work on mobile devices and all major platforms.

Cracking the Code: Coding for Elementary Kids

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Learning to code is amazing and fun because you can get instant results. Coding combines creativity, science, art, logic and storytelling, which is important for our 21st century learners. If you would like to learn how to code and what programs and apps to use with elementary students then this is the session for you. Feel free to bring an iDevice or laptop. We'll even discuss how to start an after school coding club and how coding has been introduced in 3 elementary schools, from kindergarten to 5th grade!
