Hour of Code – Professional Development

Partners in Research Canada presented 2 free webinars in conjunction with the Ontario Ministry of Education in order to provide K-8 educators with a foundation for bringing computer science education and computational thinking into the classroom. More information and video recordings are available by clicking on the images below.

We also worked together with the Ontario Ministry of Education to present several Hour of Code webinars for use in the classroom during Computer Science Education Week (CSEW), in both English and French.

Teachers joined us for one or more of the following:

  • Professional development webinar on November 29th (to get ready for Hour of Code)
  • Webinars or other coding activities for the classroom December 4th – 8th (to inspire their students)
  • Professional development webinar on December 13th (to learn how to leverage that inspiration and grow their students’ computational thinking throughout the school year).
