About this Event

Bringing data analytics and computational thinking into the everyday curriculum

The ability to process information in an analytical way will be in high demand as students enter the digitally skilled future. Because of this, teachers are now feeling the pressure to incorporate more coding and data analytics into their curricula.

Imagine being able to use a university-level analytics platform —capable of big data processing, data visualizations, math equations, and text formatting — in your grade 5-12 class. And imagine this tool being cost-free, easy to use, and only needing a web browser to operate.

This is a real opportunity for simple, accessible, and interactive learning — we call it Callysto. It has been developed by the not-for-profit organizations Cybera and the Pacific Institute for Mathematical Sciences specifically for use in Canadian classrooms.

In this full-day workshop, teachers will be introduced to the Callysto technology, and will get the chance to explore modules that have been developed for existing course curricula (covering, among other subjects, history, science, and literature).

STEM Learning Lab will work with teachers to gain insight into:

What is computational thinking?

How can it be incorporated into the classroom?

Join us for this full-day workshop to gain insight and ideas for another year of interactive awesomeness!

Work shop includes: lunch and snacks by Cait Crafted Confections, and one entry into a draw for a free yearly pass (valid until June 30, 2019) to all STEM Learning Lab Teacher Tuesday events.
