DATE TENTATIVE - Once participants register we will find the best date that works for everyone Learning to "code" (programming computers, devices, robots) has become a popular and important objective for many young people. If you're a parent, teacher, or mentor of kids, and interested in learning more about the options and resources available to help kids and youth develop technology literacy skills, or have some tricks, tools, links, or lesson plans of your own you'd like to share with others, we'd love to meet you! In this workshop, we will present a "sampler tray" of ideas and links to help you stay current with the latest educational tools and post-secondary programs to help young people gain develop confidence and problem-solving skills, and make decisions about their own self-directed learning path. We will also invite an open discussion on the current challenges facing parents, teachers, and mentors of delivering relevant computer programming lesson plans, and brainstorm ideas for forming partnerships between parents, educational organizations, and private industry to help address those challenges.
