Maximum quantity available reached.

For students with complex challenges, learning to code can help develop expressive communication, literacy, sequencing, and metacognition—skills that are essential for learning as well as daily life and work.

Guided by UDL, Bridges' Accessible Coding workshop enables educators of students with complex learning needs to teach coding, Learning to Code, and harness adapted coding instruction, Coding to Learn.

We work with common coding robots and/or applications such as Cubetto, Botley, Wonder, Blockly, Scratch, Scratch Jr., Sphero etc. - to create adapted scaffolded coding lessons.

This is a full-day workshop , designed for up to 20 participants.

Includes a USB stick with materials and adaptation tools:

Participants leave with a full kit of scaffolded instructional materials and adapted student materials for the robot(s) they have in their classroom.

Note: Bridges has materials for popular applications and will consider creating materials for those not yet developed.

 

Topics covered:
  • Benefits of learning to code for students who learn differently.
  • UDL approach to planning, materials and instruction overcoming typical barriers in coding.
  • Instructional framework and classroom resources.

 

Top takeaways from this course:

  • How to evaluate coding applications based on student needs and interface design
  • How to plan and anchor activities to curricular goals
  • A framework for adapting and scaffolding instruction and materials
  • Tools to engage all students
  • Fostering social interaction and communication through small coding teams
