Coding in Early Childhood Education
In recent years there has been a big national push to focus on promoting coding and computer science education. But what does coding look like for very young children and how can it fit into a playful early childhood context? This course answers these questions by providing participants with an understanding of how to support young children’s (PreK-2nd grade) learning of coding and computational thinking through hands-on, playful, and creative ways. Participants will learn what coding is and how it can be used to support self-expression and creativity during the foundational early childhood years.
