Meet Real Life Googlers (virtually) & Get Coding with CS First

January 18 at 10:00 am - 11:00 am PST

Free Funded by Google Canada

CALLING ALL British Columbia CLASSES - LET'S GET CODING!

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.

We’ll also explore how the CS First activities connect directly to BC Curriculum, beyond the ADST competencies!

This collaborative event with Google Canada is certain to get your Grade 4 to 6 class excited to keep on coding.

We want to be your co-teacher for an hour

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 prior experience or coding experience is required – talk about making it easy.

We will also support you along the way with our always available email help line, our CS First Teacher Guide, British Columbia Curricular Alignment documentation and an invitation to our Getting Started Live Lesson on January 25th.  

The learning won’t stop there!  We hope you’ll join us for our entire 2023 Coding Across the Curriculum series where we’ll bring coding into Science, Math, Language Arts and more.  

This is an opportunity not to be missed.  Register now, for free!

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.

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!
