Special Summer 2017 Opportunity:

Computer Modeling Can Do What?
Meeting Your Curriculum Goals with Imagination Toolbox 2017

How can you utilize computer programming to help students achieve your curricular goals? Put the engaging power of the screen to use! Learn to program by connecting visual blocks, avoiding the need for you or your students to memorize complex textual commands. Use StarLogo Nova’s block programming platform to create computational models or simulations.

Developed in collaboration with the MIT Scheller Teacher Education Program, this course will help you gain confidence in your own block programming capabilities, and you will learn strategies for actively involving students in coding in your classroom. Teachers of all subjects are welcome and will find this platform an engaging way to achieve a variety of curricular goals. No prior experience with computer programming necessary.
