Deepening Mathematics Understanding with Coding
January 24th, 2017
In this session, recorded at the WRDSB Digital Learning Symposium, elementary school teachers Megan Lowe (grade 3) and Katherine Sestan Jones (grade 1) share their experiences with coding sphero balls to deepen understanding in mathematics. The coding approach covered in this session uses the Tickle program via iPads. Megan and Katherine examine the roles of collaboration, measurement, movement, angles, iteration and creative applications as part of the session.
The slide deck is available for your reference [here].
Note: Each elementary school was issued some sphero balls through the CATC program.
Enjoy the learning and take time to share this resource with a colleague.
