EDUC 1311U – I/S Coding and Communication


Today’s adolescents are born into a technology-rich environment vastly different from that experienced by even quite recent generations. Students will increasingly need skills in coding and computational communication to be active participants in a digital world and for the future workplace. This course will introduce Intermediate/Senior teacher candidates to leading-edge pedagogies and skills for learning and teaching the foundations and fundamentals of programming. By exploring and analyzing an array of adolescent-friendly software geared at developing the basics of coding and digital communication for Grade 7 to12 learners, teacher candidates will develop innovative pedagogies for teaching and learning in the 21st century. Topics may include: coding educational games, developing mobile apps, LEGO robotics, and multi-platform digital projects.
