38. Coding for Cowards: An Experience for the Interested Novice (@Brewster)

Program: LHRIC - Instructional Technology (Model Schools Courses)

Dates: 9/26/2018

Most districts have taken a serious look at the role that coding exercises can play in developing computational thinking for K-12 students. Most of the highly popular coding environments (Scratch, Tynker, Code.org) are based on "building blocks" that make it easy to create interactive stories, animations, games, music and art. As students become immersed in coding work, they learn important mathematical and computational ideas, while also learning to think creatively, reason systematically, and work collaboratively.

This session is geared specifically for those who may not have a formal programming or computer science background, but are open to exploring how the thinking involved in coding can help enhance thinking across all disciplines. You will actively engage in programming scenarios where you will become familiar with the interface, commands, and basic protocols/commands of Scratch.

Please note: The 9/26/18 session will be hosted at the Brewster Central School District.

Program: 2018-2019 - Instructional Best Practices - INSTR

Audience: K-5 ELA Teachers and Department Leaders

Dates: 10/2/2018

We live in a world that is incredibly rich in differences—differences in the way we look, ethnicity, religion, ability and behaviors. Now more than ever, it is of the utmost importance that we teach children the value of tolerance. Our schools need to be stewards of tolerance because it is a fundamental ingredient to create safe and accepting environments. Schools need to help instill a sense of appreciation for all forms of cultural expression and learning. To this end, teachers and school leaders need tools for enculturating these beliefs and overcoming barriers that impede those beliefs when they arise. One of the most effective approaches to conquering intolerance and stereotypes is to build a culture of empathy and celebrate differences. This workshop will provide elementary teachers with the resources and model lessons they need to dismantle stereotypes and build a tolerant and accepting school community.
