Empowering Student Voice for Creative Coding: Educator Workshop

Wednesday, December 9, 2020

Engaging student voice is the secret ingredient when it comes to learning how to code. Encouraging learners to share their voice by coding about something that matters to them and reflecting on their coding journey, creates resilient and creative learners.

This educator workshop will explore how teachers can embed student voice into coding using Flipgrid and how to encourage learners to recognize and reflect on their progress!
