Each Fall, the Santa Clara County Office of Education (SCCOE) hosts a Families Learning Together Event focusing on literacy. So why literacy and coding for this year? In an effort to emphasize the importance of digital literacy, SCCOE created an event for parents and their children grades K-12 to experience together. The day's learning activities centered around concepts about understanding the impact of digital footprint, writing code and understanding sequencing, activities like making coding bracelets and programing robots, and reading and evaluating articles found on the Internet for accuracy (fake news vs. real news),
For highlights of the event from this past weekend, enjoy the following slide show. If you missed this event, save the date for the Spring STEAM event on March 10, 2018!
By the way, the SCCOE has a superb Learning Multimedia Center (LMC) and lots of hands-on activities took place at their maker space! Apply for a free LMC card and check out all the resources you can use to help your kids expand their reading repertoire, deepen their math skills, or stretch their imagination!
