The mission of #TynkerChat: Are we adequately preparing students for an unknown future? Can we, through community and sharing, make this unknown “known?” Let us lift up the conversation about making sure that when our students enter the workforce- they have the skills to thrive.
#TynkerChat will be held every Monday, starting March 13th.
A1: I think it's not understanding what coding is. People see it done on a computer and naturally think that it's one person because the PC is built for one. It can be hard to see the level after that if your unsure of what you are doing. #Tynkerchat
I need ideas -with small chromebook screens, how can both adequately see what is there? I have a real hard time without actually taking the computer and bringing it close to me to see - small screens have caused issues for me with this approach #tynkerchat
Bug checking is ALWAYS a way you can collborate. You can also add all kinds of collaboration steps if the kids are creating something for content. Best of both worlds is to have them create while teaching a "future proof" skill! #Tynkerchat
A2: With @gotynker - I've always had a couple students that got ahead. I use those students to guide others. I tell them - you can't touch their mouse or give them the answers. You have to lead them. #tynkerchat
