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. Before coding an educational game students are taught to identify a challenge, imagine a solution, experiment with it and refine it. Demonstrating the use of the Globaloria content will show how coding and video game design can be used to enhance all classes and subjects using a blended learning model. Presentation will include first hand experience by an educator who has both used, and trained many teachers in the use of coding and video game design as a classroom enhancement tool that increases engagement and gives students real world skills for the 21st century.
