FCL EdCamp: Transform Learning

February 17 @ 9:00 am - 2:30 pm

Free

FCL EdCamp: Transform Learning is presented by Fair Chance Learning and powered by HP Canada, in partnership with Microsoft Vancouver.

Join the Fair Chance Learning team as we investigate coding and digital tools to help support educators in the delivery of British Columbia’s exciting concept-based, competency-driven curriculum. This full day of training will equip you with the understanding and application you seek to reimagine education in your classroom, school or district.

The day will begin with a keynote opening remarks from Elliott Levine, Director of Education and HP Distinguished Technologist. Following this, featured speaker Brian Aspinall will share STEM, coding and computational thinking insights with you.

Throughout the day, participants will be engaged in two breakout workshops: Creative Digital Making and Creative Coding led by Lisa Floyd and Brian Aspinall, respectively. In between the breakouts, participants will be provided a healthy lunch and break.

Be prepared to be engaged in challenging and fun activities while exploring evidence-based practice surrounding computational thinking and creative technologies. You will also have the opportunity for some hands-on learning with immersive tools such as Sprout Pro by HP, micro:bit, Makey Makey and Scratch and the wide portfolio of education products offered by HP throughout the day, with a fun competition occurring near the end of the event.

FCL EdCamp: Transform Learning will culminate with a discussion on next steps, STEM education and additional educator resources.
