This session will help guide educators through the basics of computer science and coding for young learners. Multiple tools will be showcased and demonstrated, and participants will be given time to explore and create using different technologies and coding resources. This session is geared to help educators and libraries get age-specific coding activities into their learning environment. Participants will experience pre-reader tools like Cubetto by Primo Toys and indi by Sphero, easy-to-use block coding through the Scratch Junior coding app, and scalable options like Ozobot and iRobot’s coding robot Root. Code.org’s resources (tailored to young learners with little-to-no programming experience) will also be highlighted.
