Teaching coding without technology? Yes I can!

Summary

The recent introduction of the digital technologies curriculum in the primary years poses some challenges for teachers and schools. The issues of teacher knowledge, resources and financial constraints can be barriers to implementation. However, it is possible to teach many parts of the digital technologies curriculum through unplugged coding and develop algorithmic thinking skills in students, incorporating concepts from several disciplines.

The proposed workshop provides an opportunity for educators to engage in and experience various unplugged coding activities which use simple resources. In collaboration with others, participants create and trial algorithms for everyday tasks as possible activities to use in their own school contexts.
