Feedback form is now closed.
This session will focus on “WHY” you should be teaching students HOW to code, and how to incorporate coding and robotics within the current curriculum, as well as ways to inspire students and teachers within the special needs classroom (varying levels of cognitive ability.)  Real life examples and videos will showcase how students in an Autism program utilize various coding sites and apps to increase their computer literacy. In addition the presenters will demonstrate how to use small classroom-friendly robots, such as Ozobots, Spheros and Drones as part of a coding lesson. Discussion will focus on “brainstorming” additional ways/ideas that educational professionals can use coding apps and robots in a variety of subject areas. A review of ISTE standards will be discussed.
