Invent To Learn with the Technology Class of 2019 by @garystager @msmakecode … CircuitPlayground express and more

Adafruit 2018 1045

January 18 Workshop – Invent To Learn. Full-day workshop with Dr. Gary Stager includes Circuit Playground Express and Microsoft Makecode –

Learn how Scratch 3.0, micro:bits, Hummingbird Bit robotics kit, Circuit Playground Express, Microsoft Makecode, microblocks, and other emerging technology can supercharge project-based learning across the curriculum. Not only is it unprecedented for as much computational power to be accessible to children and usable in a playful creative fashion, but the low cost of these materials democratize powerful learning opportunities. These technologies and related constructive materials create great opportunities to bring progressive education ideals to life in any school. They also provide a fertile context for learning coding, engineering, and physical computing. During the workshop, we will also discuss how such technologies may be used to address the Digital Learning Technologies curriculum effectively.

The workshop is being held on Route 4 in Hackensack, NJ – just a short distance from NYC, Rockland, Westchester, and Fairfield County, CT.
