Meet Real Life Googlers (virtually) & Get Coding with CS First
January 17, 2023 at 10:00 am - 11:00 am MSTFree Funded by Google Canada
Let's Code Our Names Together
Join Canadian Googlers as we dive into coding together. Using CS First, we’ll learn about computational thinking, problem-solving, and debugging all while getting creative and having fun.
This collaborative event with Google Canada is certain to get your class excited to learn how to code.
We want to be your co-teacher for an hour and a half!
Your journey begins with a co-taught lesson where your students will learn about the importance of Computer Science and coding and meet Real Life Googlers.
Then, we’ll dive into the Animate a Name CS First activity. No coding experience is required – talk about making it easy.
We also have support for you along the way with our always available support via email and our CS First Teacher Guide. You and your class are then invited to our Getting Started lesson on January 25th where we’ll support you and your students logging into CS First and completing.
You've got questions, we've got answers
Yes! For the best experience, we suggest that each student has their own device, connected to the internet for the duration of the lesson.
Chromebooks, or other laptops, are preferred for the best user experience.
Nope – that would be a lot of work and we’re all about saving you time!
Please just register the educators of your class (teacher, EA, support staff, etc.)
Please do not register your students.
Nothing! We want to keep all student information private and will never ask you to share it with us.
During the livestream lesson, we’ll be using an interactive form. The form only has two questions:
- Your first name (or your teacher’s name – and optional!)
- Your answer to the question asked
This allows us to interact with your class, while keeping their personal information safe.
No prep work is required!
Think of us as a virtual guest speaker.
Our facilitation team handles the lesson planning and facilitation of a lesson with your teachers and their students together.
Each lesson showcases the ideas and strategies allowing both the teacher and students to learn new skills through modelling.
Worried about student privacy? Don’t fret, friend – the lessons are hosted via live stream, and they aren’t even on camera!
