Guess what? I’ve submitted a proposal to present at the 2017 South by Southwest educator conference (SXSW.edu). My session is titled “Build that Code! Teach Coding with 3D Construction Projects.” The SXSW application process includes a crowd sourcing component. Please visit my page and vote for my session!
Here’s the link for my “Build that Code!” session:
This session will include preliminary results of research conducted this summer in the CTD Leapfrog coding classes with an interdisciplinary team of Northwestern University researchers from the School of Communication and the School of Education & Social Policy. We’re making some exciting discoveries about the connections between learning to code and building with 3D construction materials like blocks and LEGOs.
Stay tuned for more info soon!
