• Discover strategies that strengthen the development of students’ computational thinking and digital citizenship skills; and,
• Recognize how to incorporate open source data to expand the possibilities for inquiry across disciplines.
  • Participants are encouraged to bring their mobile devices with the micro:bit app pre-downloaded.
  • Alternatively - participants can use personal laptops (please ensure you can use your usb port and are not fire-walled or blocked from doing this if you have a district-issued computer).
