The Art of Coding
An Infopeople Webinar
Start Time: Pacific - 12 Noon, Mountain - 1 PM, Central - 2 PM, Eastern - 3 PM
Are you interested in offering a coding program, but not sure where to begin? Join us for this one-hour webinar that will cover how to facilitate a coding club or workshop in the context of art making. Presenter Sylvia Aguiñaga will explore fundamental coding concepts and how to apply them specifically to visual design. Not only is this is a great way to engage kids of all ages, it is also especially effective for motivating students to express themselves in a creative way while teaching critical coding & life skills. Additionally, because art making is such an impactful method of self-expression, it is especially effective in recruiting girls into the world of coding.
At the end of this one-hour webinar, participants will:
- Explain what coding art means and why it’s important
- Use the resources provided to launch a coding club or an introductory workshop
- Apply teaching techniques that will help cultivate a safe and engaging learning environment
This webinar will be of interest to: librarians and library support staff in any type of library who work with tweens and teens.
