The Virtual Coffee Shop podcast – session 10

I had a  wonderful recent opportunity to connect with Ontario teacher Scott McKenzie to record this podcast on his approach to embracing coding in the classroom, how his approach has changed and evolved over the last few year and catch a glimpse at “what next” in Scott’s classroom.

I hope listeners appreciate Scott’s open and reflective conversation.  Head to the kitchen, prepare a fresh brew and enjoy this conversation with Scott McKenzie.

Coding Buddies

This blog post features a look at a collaborative coding project at Moffat Creek Public School in Cambridge Ontario. Grade six teacher Vicky McKenna (@VickyMcKenna1 ‏) collaborated with kindergarten teacher Mark Woodfield (@kindycop) ‏to have her students create a custom program for their assigned kindergarten buddy.

The video includes interviews with Vicki, Mark, digital literacy support teacher Jeff Brown (@jeff_dbrown), student feedback as well as some classroom action.
