Today's Classroom: Robotics, Programming, and Computer Science
In today's classroom students no longer complete pages of worksheets; instead they explore problems and create solutions. Computer Science and Computational Thinking are essential skills when solving critical thinking challenges and can be applied in almost any subject. This session will discuss popular tools for integrating Robotics, Programming, and Computer Science into your classroom, with a focus on content and tools for K-8 grades.
ClassFlow is free, collaborative learning software for the modern classroom that simplifies the way teachers discover, create, and deliver interactive learning -- and makes it easier than ever to share classroom content with parents.
