Developing Future-Ready Students
When thinking about how students demonstrate and share their learning, have you ever considered sharing through code? As an educator who didn’t have formal training with coding, it is a daunting idea to have students share their learning through code. How do I assess it? Will I even understand it? The reality is that code is all around us and our comfort shouldn’t limit how students can demonstrate their thinking and learning. The first step in developing future ready students is to discover coding for yourself. There are so many asynchronous options to learn how to code at your own pace. Jumping into block-based coding through Swift Playground has been a great entry point to build my confidence. Regardless of block-based coding or text-based coding, there is so much rich learning and development of transferable skills that takes place. The next step is to create opportunities where coding can be used in your learning space. A great way to start is being inspired by other educators, learning from their experience, and reflecting on how it may be modified for your own students.
A group of amazing Canadian Educators have gotten together to share how they develop future-ready learners in a virtual Apple Teacher Meet Up that is open to all educators! Join us on Thursday, November 30 at 7pm ET to get inspired!
