Playful Computing: K-5 Class - 10/9/17

Playful Computing for Gifted Students help teachers build the creativity of their gifted students through experiences with physical computing. Physical computing can be defined as sensing and controlling the physical world using computers. Teaching about physical computing is important for helping students become more engaged with computer science. Participants will learn to use computing gear such as the Makey Makey boars and the AdaFruit Circuit Playgroup to learn concepts in computational thinking, which can be defined as problem-solving in a very systematic way. In this workshop, you'll learn strategies for: designing, expressing, playing, iterating, collaboration and sharing all in the context of playful computing.
