Event description

Description

The ability to process information in an analytical way will be in high demand as students enter the digitally skilled future. Because of this, teachers are now feeling the pressure to incorporate more coding, computational thinking and data analytics into their curricula.

Imagine being able to use a university-level analytics platform — capable of big data processing, data visualizations, math equations, and text formatting — in your high school classes. And imagine this tool being cost-free, easy to use, and only needing a web browser to operate.

This is a real opportunity for simple, accessible, and interactive learning — we call it Callysto.

In this interactive workshop, teachers will be introduced to the Callysto platform via rich problems that straddle different areas of the BC high school curriculum.

You will see firsthand the power and versatility of Callysto through the access to existing modules covering a wide range of course curricula (i.e. ranging from math and science to history, science, and literature). Our team will also show you how to use these modules in your classroom, and will also work with you to customize specific modules to fit your needs.

Please bring your fully-charged laptops with Chrome, Firefox or Safari web browser installed. This workshop is FREE to attend, and teachers will be provided with a free lunch. Honorariums for B.C. teachers will be provided to attend this workshop ($450) to cover teacher on call costs.
