The MNCodes Summit is a day of learning for educators that focuses theme of Computer Science for All (#csforall). Hands-on sessions explore ways to integrate computer science, coding, and computational thinking into a variety of curricular areas, from K-12! Featured speakers include educators at elementary, middle, and high school levels. Our goal is to provide a wide range of topics that help educators at all levels of computer science education. Past keynote speakers have included AnnMarie Thomas, Ph.D. from the University of St. Thomas, School of Engineering and Dr. Maria Gini from the University of MN, Department of Computer Science and Engineering, and Joan Freese of TpT/SciGirls.
Also featured, a Playground demo area of many different devices and technologies to help incorporate computer science into the classroom. New to coding education? This is a great chance to try out many different computer science activities and ask questions to educators who have experience using them in the classroom. Have you been teaching computer science for a while? Come and explore new ideas for integrating computer science into already existing curriculum. The playground area features ideas for lessons and projects for both beginners and those who are more advanced.
Lastly, we have poster sessions – informal, hands-on learning opportunities on specific topics.
Information about the 2019 MNCodes Summit will be posted here and on the MNCodes Summit site in Winter 2018, including a request for session proposals and registration details.
