10th Annual Educational Technology Conf 11/15/19

The 10th Annual WPU Educational Technology Conference
Supporting the Development of Computational Thinking Skills
for All Learners


Event Program

 

In our ever-evolving technological world, supporting students’ development of computational thinking at an early age is critical. This year’s conference addresses key aspects of computational thinking and how this skill-set can be fostered in preK-12 classrooms. Conference participants will gain knowledge and competencies for integrating computational thinking and coding activities into their preK-12 classrooms.
