Silicon Labs, Austin will host a FREE Code.org workshop.  FREE CPEs for educator re-certification will be provided.  Teachers will also receive the Code.org printed curriculum, swag, and the supplies they need to teach the course-at no cost.

Code.org has developed an elementary and middle school curriculum that allows even the youngest students to explore the limitless world of computing – at no cost for teachers and schools. The courses blend online, self-guided and self-paced tutorials with “unplugged” activities that require no computer at all. Each course consists of about 20 lessons that may be implemented as one unit or over the course of a semester. Even kindergarten-aged pre-readers can participate in learning computer science topics.

Here’s a link to the Code.org K-8 Overview Video: http://code.org/educate/k5

By the end of each course, students can create interactive games or stories that they can share with anyone.  To register for the Saturday workshop:

1/9/16, 9:00 am – 04:00 pm  https://code.org/professional-development-workshops/5077806

We will have a door prize drawing for a Code.org hat when we have 20 or more participants.  Bring a colleague!  If your school hosts a Code.org workshop, you will receive the programming board game “Code Monkey Island”. 

Tell Kindergarten through 8th grade teachers, tech specialists, librarians, and principals to REQUEST FREE 1-day workshops to be provided at school during the school day, Saturdays, afterschool, and in the summer by contacting Changing Expectations so they can start teaching these life-changing skills! Dr. Phillip Eaglin: email phillip.eaglin@changeexpectations.org or call me: (512) 496-6824 for more info.
