EU Code Week is right around the corner (10-25th of October), so here’s a bit of info about the free sessions I’ll be running with Steve Bunce.
What is it?
We’ll be presenting follow-along coding sessions that follow the A Quick Start to Code PDF from Apple.
A Quick Start to Code – https://education-static.apple.com/teaching-code/quick-start-to-code.pdf
The material is aimed at teachers, students, parents, and children. Steve and I will give plenty of tips and tricks for simplifying the material; for extending it, for experienced coders; unplugged ways to approach the same concepts; and answer questions might you have had.
When is it?
We’ll be streaming every week day during EU Code Week from 9:45 to 10:30am, Irish and UK time.
The first five sessions will run from the 12th to the 16th of October and then we’ll repeat the sessions from the 19th to the 23rd of October, for you to catch up if you were on school break or if you didn’t get to attend a session.
What do I need?
I can’t wait to get coding with all of you. You just need a few things:
- An iPad (running iOS 13.1 or later)
- Swift Playgrounds
- An internet connection
We have a whole mini-site at https://www.thecodehub.ie/eu-code-week-2020/ with a ton more info, including details on specific days, how to use the class in your classroom or at home, and where to go once you’ve exhausted all of these coding resources.
See you online!
