honorCode invites you to join a cohort of teachers from around the city of Atlanta who are interested in learning how to weave coding into their general content classroom. Our training empowers teachers in any subject to teach coding in their classroom while still covering the content they are required to teach, and comes with the use of our K12 coding curriculum to ease the transition into teaching this valuable, employable skill.
Additional benefits include:
A full year of the honorCode K12 Coding Curriculum - complete with unit plans, lesson plans, and pre-and post-tests - to help ease the transition to teaching coding in your classroom
Coding assignments between PD sessions to sharpen your skills
Access to honorCode resources that will help you feel confident teaching coding to your students
Membership in a growing community of teachers sharing tools and resources
Come learn from a team of educators backed by Google and Forbes, and watch as your students develop problem-solving, collaboration, and critical thinking skills.
I have never coded before. Do I need to have experience?
Great question! No, you do not need experience with coding. This series of professional development workshops is designed to equip you with the basics of what you need to know to bring these skills into the classroom.
What if I am really not very good with technology...?
No problem! We make it easy and provide step-by-step instructions during the sessions, and your cohort teammates can help too! You might even end up helping some of them out by the end of the sessions...
What exactly will I be learning?
How many days will I need to attend?
The honorCode Saturday PD sessions are from 9:00am-1:00pm on Saturday, January 14th, February 11th, and March 11th, totalling three (3) four-hour days.
I teach elementary students. Will they really be able to learn this at such a young age?
How is this different than other coding training?
We are first and foremost educators. Our curriculum was developed by veteran teachers alongside professional coders, and we use the pedagogic techniques and projects in our own classrooms! Instead of a techy telling you how to program a computer, we offer information in a context and format that can be easily picked up by teachers.
Where can I contact the organizer with any questions?
