Coding programming for kids is going to be/is already the next big thing! Catch this free webinar to learn more on implementing it in your library!

Cracking the Code – Coding in the Library

Wed, May 19, 2015,  2:00–3:00 PM CST

Join us for a webinar to look at FREE resources for teaching K-12 computer programming via your library. The best part? You need zero coding experience to participate! All you need is a willingness to have fun, let your patrons be the experts, and to provide time for kids to get excited about designing their own programs. Perhaps you have heard about Hour of Code? Well the hour for coding in your library is now! Don’t miss out!

The webinar will be presented by Leah Mann, Library Media Specialist at Killian Middle School in Lewisville ISD. Lea has fourteen years experience as an educator, including eight as a school librarian. She has a passion for providing opportunities for students to explore in a variety of ways and is excited to be a part this dynamic season for libraries. Leah  has presented on a variety of topics at TLA, TCEA, SXSWedu, and ESC Region XI and is excited to have recently added coding to the mix, and to present her first webinar.
