When viewing the Technical Program schedule, on the far righthand side
is a column labeled "PLANNER." Use this planner to build your own
schedule. Once you select an event and want to add it to your personal
schedule, just click on the calendar icon of your choice (outlook
calendar, ical calendar or google calendar) and that event will be
stored there. As you select events in this manner, you will have your
own schedule to guide you through the week.
You can also create your personal schedule on the SC11 app (Boopsie) on your smartphone. Simply select a session you want to attend and "add" it to your plan. Continue in this manner until you have created your own personal schedule. All your events will appear under "My Event Planner" on your smartphone.
SESSION: COMPUTATIONAL THINKING: Introduction to Modeling and Simulation as Teaching Tools
EVENT TYPE: Education
TIME: 10:30AM - 12:00PM
SESSION CHAIR: Robert M. Panoff
Presenter(s):Bob Panoff, Jennifer Houchins, Steven I. Gordon
ABSTRACT: Pre-built simulations are valuable resources for learning. In this session, we will demonstrate a variety of web-based simulations that are widely used in K-16 science and math classrooms. We will model an inquiry-based approach for using these tools to teach computational thinking in K12 thru college.
Assumed background: basic computer literacy.
