Session Description

The ability to process information in an analytical way is becoming increasingly important, and educators are encouraged or expected to incorporate more coding and data analytics into their teaching.

We will explore Callysto’s free Python-based modules developed for teaching outcomes in the Alberta Program of Studies while fostering computational thinking and data analysis.

You will be able to investigate how to incorporate these into your teaching of various subjects, and create or edit modules for other outcomes if you are interested.
