Get prepared for the new Ontario coding curriculum by building skills, knowledge and confidence.

U of T Engineering Outreach is offering free, live online sessions for teachers interested in learning how to approach the new coding elements in the Ontario 1–8 curriculum. These workshops will be led by our K-8 STEM Educator in Residence along with an experienced classroom educator and expert in digital education technology. These sessions will introduce participants to the basics of coding and provide instruction, insight and support as to how these new additions can be integrated into classrooms.

Through these workshops, you will:

  • Learn to teach coding in a K-8 class using fun, engaging lessons that are easy for both students and instructors to understand
  • Examine the coding curriculum for each grade, breaking it down to better understand individual terms and expectations
  • Receive access to a share folder full of fun, detailed resources that can be used in classrooms right away! INCLUDING FRENCH RESOURCES!
  • Learn a diverse range of instructional techniques and programming ideas that allow teachers more flexibility in how they teach coding, both online and off
