Canada Learning Code Week 2021: Power On Your Students’ Creativity
In December 2021, hundreds of educators and 13,220+ students joined forces across Canada in discovering fun and interactive ways to teach and learn computer science during the fifth annual CLC Week!
It has never been more important that we equip students with the resources they need to build essential digital skills through computer science education. In Canada, we lack consistent and comprehensive computer science education across all provinces and territories, which leads to inaccessibility and inequality across communities. Computer science education is essential to ensure students can prosper and become thriving citizens in our digital world, and we believe that teachers are the catalyst to opening the minds of students to computer science. This is why we provide easy-to-follow and understand resources for teachers without any need for previous coding or computer science experience.
This year, we wanted to help bring the unexpectedly entertaining side of computer science into classrooms. By registering for our learning tool, educators were able to access dynamic downloadable lesson plans and live computer science workshops to get them ready to teach.
We connected with amazing educators who wanted to equip themselves – and the youth in their lives – with the tools they need to start interacting with tech in their classrooms. If you weren’t able to take part live, check out the recordings of the workshops available on our Learning Tool here!
We loved seeing your magic moments! Here are a few of our favourites.
