Running Robots: Computer Coding & Special Education

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Technology is developed and improved every day that impacts all aspects of our lives, and many jobs may be done more efficiently by technology in the future. How do schools train special-needs students for the changing job market? Computer programming/coding, one of the fastest-growing fields, is one way. Coding requires solving problems, discriminating directions, playing puzzles and games; skills already addressed in the classroom. This session will provide hands-on experience programing robots and adapting a cost-effective coding curriculum for special needs students.
