NLESD Teacher PL site for Coding and Maker Ed

Take a look at this great Professional Learning site created by Christine Elliot (Coding Itinerant)!

The site links to a variety of other sites created by teachers and program directors tha docs on coding and Maker Ed!

From the site:
This Maker Education and Coding professional learning (PL) site is intended for those wanted to incorporate more hands on learning and coding in the curriculum. This PL will center around what are some of the more popular resources being used in NL classrooms and some ideas on how to use them in the curriculum from K to 12. We realize that all teachers will have varying levels of familiarity with the concept of Maker Education and coding work. Please look around the site, investigate, participate in the blog questions (if you want) and make use of the resources that are best suited to your own learning needs.

3D Printing Meetup

Join the NLTA Technology Education Special Interest Council and Brilliant Labs once again in exploring 3D printing and classroom implications. This session is appropriate for any K-12 teacher, teaching in any subject area, with an interest in learning about 3D printing. The focus of the session will be for beginners. A more intermediate/advanced session will be offered at a later date.

This will be a great opportunity to learn more about using the Tinkercard program to design with your students and the in's and out's of slicing and printing using the program Cura. As well, you will have the opportunity to chat and connect with other educators interested in 3D printing and maker education!

Please bring along a laptop to use during the workshop. We will have some devices on hand if you're not able to bring one along. Snacks will be provided. Invite your friends!

We have limited space available so please let us know if plans change and you are unable to make it.
