Come and see how Blended Learning can take your classrooms into the 21st century by harnessing the power of Coding and Video Game Design. Presenters will show how teachers with no background in coding can use Computer Science in grades 4 – 12 as a way of guiding students to think logically and to develop problem-solving strategies.
