🕹️ Computational Thinking through Play

Children at Image Elementary are coming to school at 7:30 in the morning, a full hour before classes begin to participate in Michele McRae’s Teacher Librarian Tech Camp at Image Elementary.

During the next four weeks through play children will explore computational thinking and creativity with Ozobots, Beebots, Scratch, Makey Makey, Spheros and more.  All materials have been provided by Evergreen School District and are available for checkout through the Evergreen Edtech Department.

Computational thinking is not just for coding and robots.  It is a skill set needed to navigate social relationships, academics and helps children make choices in their daily life.  It’s not about turning kids into computer programmers it’s about kids using their brains to imagine, create new learning and problem solve. These concepts transfer to all areas of learning and can be spiraled into the day.
