Course Code: SI-12

Part 1 – August 25, 2021; Part 2 – August 26, 2021


In this two-part OTF Summer Institute, participants will explore culturally responsive pedagogy and a framework to design and implement coding learning experiences that reflect, honour and value the lived experiences of our learners. Together, we will investigate different modes for students to communicate their understanding. Having an entry point for all learners and participants will provide opportunities to tinker with no tech, low tech, and high tech applications for learning coding that support integrated instruction across the K-8 curriculum. This Summer Institute is facilitated by members of the Educational Computing Organization of Ontario (ECOO), a subject/division association in Ontario.
