Release the BOTS: Coding with Young Children
While PK-5 Elementary school classrooms have long been a hub of curiosity and innovation, it is time for a more focused and integrated approach to the inclusion of coding. Coding has become an integral part of our daily lives and what better way to foster logic and problem-solving skills than by learning to code at a young age.
Teachers will experience how Bee-bots can encourage students to work in groups to design maps, develop a route card, calculate steps or retell a story by creating a sequence of codes. Teachers will also have a chance to explore websites appropriate for PK-2 Early Childhood and PK-5 Elementary age learners. We will have hands-on time with apps, websites, Bee-bots, Blue-bots and share resources for developing ELA and Math Connections.

Techie Tots: Engaging Tech for EC Classrooms
Having access to technology is great and all, but let's be realistic. The real magic happens when we equip our teachers with the resources and experiences to turn the tech over to their young students. Scary? Maybe. Doable? Totally. Rewarding? Absolutely.
Participants in this session will have the opportunity to experiment with a variety of tools, strategies and devices to use in the PK-2 Early Childhood classroom. We'll demonstrate and let participants try out Osmos, Tigglys, Bee Bots, Pro Bots, and Playdough Touch. Participants will also hear from a SeeSaw ambassador about easy-to-use and student-led applications for the PK-2 Early Childhood classroom, as well as excellent school to home connections.
Attendees of this session will walk away with a wide variety of usable ideas that focus on the needs and learning styles of the youngest students by putting meaningful technology directly into their hands.
The presenters of this session are real-life Pre-K teachers and PK-2 Early Childhood school leaders who are excited to share the authentic teaching practices and collaborative experiences that have worked well for their students.
