Canada Learning CODE Week: June 1-8


June 1 - 8, 2017 is Canada Learning CODE Week. Learn more here: http://www.canadalearningcode.ca/week/

Canada Learning Code week has been created thanks to the support of the Department of Canadian Heritage and Boeing. The week is meant to offer all Canadians the opportunity to participate and learn about our country’s history and re-imagine it digitally (through games, interactive stories, digital art and more!) while advancing digital literacy.

All the resources are free! Download the Teacher Guide and check out the free lessons!

After students complete a lesson, you can submit their project for a chance to win Google Chromebooks for your class. The winning classroom will celebrate Canada’s history and demonstrate historical accuracy, creativity and the use of coding concepts.

On July 1st, Canada Learning Code will reveal a digital scrapbook collection of student projects that celebrate Canada’s 150 years - reimagined through the eyes of our youth. Learn more here: http://www.canadalearningcode.ca/week/
