Hi, my I am Josh Ipson. I teach 2nd Grade in Delta Utah. There is a big push in the district I work in to integrate coding into our classrooms. I am interested to see this take shape in my own classroom and am excited to get things rolling. I am open to any thoughts or suggestions on how to best teach coding in a 2nd Grade classroom in an efficient and effective way.
Thanks,
Josh

Hello,

My name is Katherine Clarkson and I live/work in Wapiti Wyoming (30 min. from Yellowstone). I teach grades K-5 at Wapiti Elementary School. I am interested in being part of this community because there is so much a child can learn from Computer Science. It’s not just about computer it’s a way of thinking, breaking things down, and understanding.

My students often struggle with reading, writing and math, but they truly understand computers, my goal with this class if to learn ways to help them feel more successful in school and in their future.

Hi @whitworthka. Welcome! Your reason for being here is so beautiful! Sounds like you are meeting students where they are to help them go further.

Please connect back here with any questions along the way!

My name is Heather Hook. I am currently in the Teacher Credential program at CSUB. I was just hired to teach a 6th grade class starting this fall. I’m taking the Technology for Teacher course this summer. Tech and computers make me nervous on a good day, and having a full blown panic attack on a bad day. This learning module is an optional assignment for my tech class. Looking forward to learning more and overcoming my tech phobias.

Welcome Heather! You are in the right place! We build all our materials assuming no previous experience. We also encourage teachers to embrace the role of being a “lead learner” where you can learn along with your students.
