CodeHS Teacher Trainer Workshop [March 2022]
P5JS has become a great programming language to teach students how to code with visual output but still maintain the use of CS concepts. Mixed with its own functions and Javascript, I've used P5JS in my 9th-grade classroom to teach students how to make interactive art or simple games. This workshop will present how to use P5JS in your classroom with a live demo building a project and turning it into a lesson using CodeHS. Don't miss out on this creative, fun, and interactive workshop!
CodeHS Teacher Trainer Workshop [Jan 2022]
The CodeHS sandbox is a great place to let students unleash their creativity. By default, sandbox exercises are spaces where students can make various things with no automatic feedback. In this workshop, we will learn how to add our own autograders to give our students quicker feedback about their code. We will cover the autograder documentation for Python and HTML/Javascript, examples of using the autograder commands, and present a live demonstration of making a few creative coding assignments with autograding. Autograding techniques provide various fun feedback possibilities; you do not want to miss out on this interactive workshop!
