Computing in the Classroom: Coding for Kids Working Session

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Computing skills are near and dear to the ESIP mission. The Education Committee is exploring how best to provide educator opportunities to learn Earth Science-relevant computer skills. The possibilities range from building story maps to basic coding to simple smartphone apps. These skills can help educators encourage their students to be creators of the technology around us rather than just consumers. In this session we will hear from current educators, discuss options for different computing curricula, identify the best fit for ESIP Education, and plan the workshop session for the 2018 ESIP Summer Meeting.
