Today, more than ever, students are being encouraged to learn how to program. We now know that computational thinking is a skill that will benefit students in every aspect of education. Millions of students are now learning how to code, but there is still a lot of work to do to make it truly a new literacy. There has been a wide variety of research to show that tangible programming is one of the best ways to teach young students this valuable skill. By putting toys that students are already used to using in their hands (for example blocks and legos), they are more likely to think freely and learn the skill faster. In this session, we will explore a variety of tools that foster tangible programming. Come learn how these hands on tools can teach even your youngest students how to program!
