More About the Teach Wonder Program

Educators have more demands and less time these days to reach every student. In an ever-changing digital world, it can be difficult to stay up to date on the latest and greatest pedagogy. Wonder Workshop is committed to accelerate the adoption of computer science principles into 21st-century classrooms. Teach Wonder supports educators as they integrate coding and robotics skills into everyday teaching and learning.

The first in a series of online courses to come from Wonder Workshop, Introduction to Coding and Robotics with Dash & Dot contains six two-hour modules for teachers to complete at their own pace. Educators can dive into theory and practice new concepts with creative and reflective learning activities, all while connecting with a larger community of like-minded educators from across the country. Teachers will be able to apply the course towards PDHs.

Gain a broader understanding of how coding and robotics fit into your everyday teaching with Wonder Workshop’s foundational course (~12 hours). Explore how computer science introduces new tech tools, addresses best practices of learning theory, complements thoughtful instructional design, and impacts classroom environments. Delve into the why before tackling the what and the how of Wonder Workshop’s CleverBots, Dash & Dot.

The scope and sequence of the course are designed to instill confidence in teachers of all coding levels and to build the knowledge and skills needed to bring state-of-the-art coding and robotics experiences into every classroom.
