LIVE Code (April - June 2019)
Let's Talk Science and the Saskatchewan Ministry of Education will be presenting a series of live broadcasts to Saskatchewan schools. This opportunity is open to all K-6 educators.
Broadcasts in English (Times of the broadcasts are still being determined and will be shared via email with registered participants):
- April 17, 2019: Focus on Coding and Literacy
- May 1, 2019: Focus on Coding and Numeracy
- June 5, 2019: Focus on Coding and STEM
Broadcasts in French (Times of the broadcasts are still being determined and will be shared via email with registered participants):
- le 3 avril, 2019: Jeunes penseurs computationnels : programmation déconnectée de la maternelle à la 3e année
le 3 avril, 2019: Collaborateurs créatifs : la résolution de problèmes au moyen de données de la 4e à la 6e année
These broadcasts will model best practices for educators when introducing computational thinking concepts and skills to students in Kindergarten to Grade 3 and Grades 4 to 6. During the broadcasts, a Let’s Talk Science facilitator will engage students in hands-on learning activities that will model the integration of coding into literacy, numeracy and STEM. All activities will be aligned to Saskatchewan curriculum. Participating teachers will be provided with follow-up activities that they can do on their own with their students after the broadcasts.
Please note: Although the topic of the broadcast will be the same (i.e. literacy, numeracy, STEM), the activities and focus of the broadcast will differ for the grade range to align with Saskatchewan curriculum.
