Oh the things you can do… Innovate and Educate with Squeak
Tuesday, 24 August 2010
For Teachers and Students from Grade 4-12

Announcing an invitation to learn and meet other “Squeakers”. Squeak is a visual programming language that can be used as an educational tool for teaching children powerful ideas in compelling ways. This free program can be used by teachers and students to explore concepts and develop learning activities. Participants will be provided with the software and a variety of learning activities that have been developed to support State and National Science, Technology, and Mathematics Standards. The planned activities have been previously implemented in a variety of classroom settings and readily implemented.

In the first sessions participants will be exposed to Squeak in order to utilize the provided Squeak tools, tutorials, and to explore projects created by other students and teachers in their subject area. In the later sessions, participants will learn to use Vernier probeware and Lego Mindstorm Robots in their Squeak instruction. In addition, the 4 Thursday sessions will provide “homework” time to make up 2 additional hours for a total of 10 hours for the series. For more information and FREE registration: UNCW Science and Mathematics Education Center 910-962-3168. For information on Squeak: http://www.squeakland.org/

The Saturday programs in the UNCW Computer Science Building duplicate two-hour workshops offered after school on the previous Thursdays. There will be time for individual instruction and no homework since the Saturday sessions are extended to three hours. The Saturday workshops will include participants and instructors from the Thursday sessions, so participants will have the added benefit of getting perspectives on the use of Squeak from teachers in other school systems.
