Learning With iPad

Session: Get Started With Coding

Discover how you can engage primary learners with coding using the visual-based programming apps codeSpark Academy and Tynker. codeSpark Academy uses a word-free interface to engage young learners aged five to eleven, allow learners to seamlessly transition from visual blocks to Swift so that they become familiar with Swift syntax early on. Join us to learn how to help your K-5 learners to explore coding concepts, practice applying the concepts in codeSpark Academy and Tynker, and begin to think like coders.

Session: Swift Playgrounds

Learning to code teaches learners how to solve problems and work together in creative ways. We believe coding is an essential skill. So we’ve designed a new approach to coding that lets anyone learn, write and teach it.

Join us for a workshop where you will:
– Learn why Swift is the best language for teaching and learning coding, and for app development
– Explore how the Swift Playgrounds app for iPad can make learning to code fun and interactive for learners.
– Explore how to bring coding concepts to life with connected robots and drones

Session: StoryTelling with iPad

Digital storytelling gives learners a voice. It improves communication skills and literacy and encourages collaboration. iMovie and Clips for iPad lets learners create their own visual story. We’ll start with brainstorming ideas, and then take you through a hands-on project to learn how to plan, map, create and share your masterpiece with the world
