Students passing the Technology Torch from High School to PreK

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Students passing the technology torch from High school to PreK highlights the district of Mashpee's experience of trying to vertically align technology curriculum while having older students teach younger students about robotics and introducing coding. We took the instructors out of the mix by allowing the students to create and run the projects in the class. High school students created Bee Bot maps to introduce coding to kindergarten and first grade students. High school students spent approximately one class a week for four months at the younger school, you will hear their experience as well as our youngest learner's stories.
