Description:

Today’s computer code is a language that offers children a bright tomorrow. With empowering opportunities clearly on the horizon for this generation of young children, it is critical that early childhood educators understand the basics of coding and it’s importance as tool for young children to possess in their early years. Learning to write computer code opens avenues for individual forms of self-expression, creativity, and personal fulfillment; and early childhood educators can offer intentional developmentally appropriate experiences that relate. This webinar presents five topics from the world of computer coding and demonstrates connections to real-world early childhood experiences with literature, manipulatives, artistic endeavors, games, and collaborative problem-solving.
