TVO TeachOntario is honoured to present this livestream webinar: Lisa Anne Floyd: Coding in the Classroom


Coding in Mathematics 1-8! Join Lisa Anne Floyd as she presents coding ideas and resources linked directly to Ontario's new 1-8 Mathematics curriculum. New overall and specific expectations will be highlighted, with sample applications that students can read, alter, and create. Ideas and resources will help support educators and students in face-to-face, blended, and remote learning contexts.


"Coding can be incorporated across all strands and provides students with opportunities to apply and extend their math thinking, reasoning, and communicating."
