Our students will be looking for STEM jobs as adults and we need to prepare our students for this future! With the new computer science standards k-12 here in Indiana it is important that we teach our students all the skills necessary to be successful in the future. Having unplugged activities for students to learn these makes this accessible to all students. I would like to work on teaching these skills throughout the school year with a variety of teaching tools. Teaching student coding skills will be an essential skill they will need. Forbes Magazine reported, "Women hold nearly half of all jobs in the U.S., but less than 25 percent of all STEM jobs." It is important for all students to be taught these skills! I have created a coding unit for my classroom that will start with unplugged activities and then actually coding on the computer throughout the rest of the year. The items I am requesting are games will be used in small groups for students to start to understand coding. Code Monkey Island helps learns computer science logic and basic programming syntax. Littlecodr is a card game that one person in the group will "program" someone else to do something by following the steps on the cards. CodeMaster will teach principles behind programming and understand sequential reasoning. CodingFarmers will introduce students to the java programming language and programming concepts. Future Coders Poppin' Pictures kit will teach students pixelation, breaking down images into sequences of symbols to learn to create pictures using code.
