Coding in the K-8 Classroom

This session explores perspectives on the Avondale Elementary School District's second year of implementing a K-8 coding curriculum. We discuss three different coding platforms we use and have students present on what they do in each of these platforms. In addition, we discuss how we facilitate our coding classes and provide resources for others who are interested in making a coding curriculum.
