In this professional development workshop we will explore computational tinkering — a playful, collaborative, and open-ended approach to exploring digital tools including Scratch visual programming, BBC Micro:bit and Chibitronics Chibichip.
As part of the three-day atelier, educators will experience several hands-on computational tinkering activities as learners, construct their own workshop elements and brainstorm strategies to integrate new technologies to art, science, coding and making programs.
