Would you like to help your K-12 teachers integrate coding into any subject or grade-level classroom? Join Michael Braun as he shares a revolutionary new web-based technology called TouchDevelop, which any K-12 teacher can use to integrate coding into any subject or course, without having any previous coding experience. In this session, Michael will go beyond how to use TouchDevelop, which works on any phone, tablet, laptop, or PC - whether they are iOS, Android, Windows, Mac, or Linux- and provide suggestions for implementing coding across curriculum.

Michael will cover suggestions for how you can create and cultivate an interest in coding amongst your teachers and students. He will also provide ideas for integrating coding into a variety of subjects and grade levels and include suggestions that your teachers can use to help them deliver coding instruction with TouchDevelop. Michael will also discuss the benefits of long-term integration of coding into a classroom, as well as ideas for implementing that integration so that students can develop strong coding and problem-solving skills.
