How are you encouraging students as well as teachers to regularly develop problem solving skills, creativity, and computational thinking skills? Scratch software from MIT should play a significant part in your answer to this question.
This Friday, July 8, 2011, I’ll be sharing three presentations at the Innovations 2011 Conference in Oklahoma City sponsored by the Oklahoma State Department of Education. I’m using the following slides, combined with this video and these web links, in the session, “Supporting STEM Skills with Scratch.” This is a new presentation for me and I’m VERY enthused to have an opportunity to both show Scratch to Oklahoma superintendents and principals as well as encourage them to start after-school Scratch clubs.
My other two sessions are “Simple Ideas for Powerful Sharing” and “Leading Schools with Digital Vision in a Bubblesheet World.” Resources for each of those sessions are available on the links above.
