Please see the following announcement from two of the CBE's innovative educators:
We are very excited to announce Southern Alberta’s first Scratch Educator Meetup!
A Meetup is an opportunity to:
- network with other educators and community members who use the Scratch programming language with students
- share project ideas and see projects that others have done
- brainstorm with colleagues to extend your project ideas to new heights
- learn about the support and resources that are available to help you and your students - both in Calgary and in the Global ScratchEd Community
We are looking forward to creating a support and resource group in Calgary and area for those who are using Scratch (or are new to Scratch and want to learn!!) in their classrooms. Our professional learning model is similar to how EdCamp works. You ask for the sessions and discussions that you want to be a part of - and the group works to facilitate those activities and learning opportunities!
So please, join us join us on Wednesday, May 11th, 2016 in the learning commons at Captain Nichola Goddard School from 4:30 to 6:30 for this professional learning opportunity and let's help students be inspired to create amazing programs! There is no cost for the event and afterwards, anyone who is interested can join us for supper to continue the conversation.
