SchoolNet webinar recording and downloadable presentation link ‘Coding – it’s not scary- it’s easy and it’s free…’ by Charmaine Roynon

On Tuesday afternoon 27 Hune at 3:30pm we held a free SchoolNet webinar entitled ‘Coding – it’s not scary- it’s easy, it’s free and it promotes cerebral fitness!’ Our speaker was Charmaine Roynon, a Microsoft MIEExpert from Cape Town. Charmaine is the ICT Integrator at Wynberg Girl’s Junior School, and she is also Head of Curriculum Development and Teacher Training at EDU 365 SA.  Charmaine is very interested in coding and its importance to our learners and she recently ran a Coding Conference at her school for teachers around Cape Town. 

Webinar description

Charmaine said before the webinar:: “I have spent many years supporting teachers in their ICT integration journey. Sometimes I have to expose teachers to material that I am not so sure of myself! So, in line with the saying: “If it scares you, it might be a good thing to try.” (Seth Godin), I started exploring the world of coding, it’s educational impact and why it is often referred to as “21st Century Oxygen”. After doing some research, I discovered some incredible coding websites that are interactive, engaging and include teaching functions in the form of short video clips to guide users through each process. All this – for free! The coding community have really come together to enable and empower young people to develop computational thinking, problem solving and logical thinking and many other competencies! In 36 years in education, this has got to be one of the easiest things I have ever done – with (by far) the most impact. Join me on my journey into the invigorating and exciting world of coding – made easy! “
