Learning to code can help teachers and students solve problems, work together in creative ways and bring their ideas to life. When students and teacher work together amazing things can happen.
In this two day workshop, pairs of teachers and students will work together to learn about the Swift programming language and how it can be taught in school. It will meet from 9:00 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. on Wednesday March 27th and Thursday March 28th. Participants be expected to present a poster session on Friday, March 29th at the NETA Conference.
