Webinar details
Webinar title: Coding - it's not scary- it's easy, it's free and it promotes cerebral fitness

Summary: Charmaine says: "I have spent many years supporting teachers in their ICT integration journey. Sometimes I have to expose teachers to material that I am not so sure of myself! So, in line with the saying: "If it scares you, it might be a good thing to try." (Seth Godin), I started exploring the world of coding, it's educational impact and why it is often referred to as "21st Century Oxygen". After doing some research, I discovered some incredible coding websites that are interactive, engaging and include teaching functions in the form of short video clips to guide users through each process. All this - for free! The coding community have really come together to enable and empower young people to develop computational thinking, problem solving and logical thinking and many other competencies! In 36 years in education, this has got to be one of the easiest things I have ever done - with (by far) the most impact. Join me on my journey into the invigorating and exciting world of coding - made easy! "
