Want to be a part of a training that will change your life? Want to be stretched to try things that you never thought you could do? I suggest you apply to attend Picademy. You can check out my recycled blog post at theonebyte.com to read my thoughts right after I attended Picademy in July 2017. Go to https://www.raspberrypi.org/training/picademy/picademyna/ to apply.
Has your state adopted computer science learning standards? I will walk you through Ohio's computer science standards for teaching algorithms from kindergarten to twelfth grade. You will see that you may be teaching algorithms already. I will give you some ideas on how to integrate algorithms into your content or self contained classroom.
I get asked time and time again, which robot you should buy as a present for a son/daughter, niece/nephew or for the classroom. I explain why I picked certain robots for the classroom and for my daughters.
Do you want a fun computer science activity to integrate into your classroom? If so, look no further than the Maker Maker. I will give a variety of integration ideas and some times I've used throughout the years.
I want to encourage you to take that first step into integrating computer science and technology into your classroom. I will share some tools and ideas on how to take that first step.
Topics I will discus are:
LEGO Mindstorms EV3
