Calgary teachers head back to class for a crash course in coding

CALGARY—Class is in session for some of Calgary’s K-12 teachers. Only this time, they’re the students.

Canada Learning Code, an organization committed to teaching code to citizens spanning multiple generations and demographics, is hosting a day-long workshop on Saturday geared towards teaching educators how to code.

The Teachers Learning Code program strives to arm teachers with coding abilites, so that they can incorporate code in their own lesson plans, said Carolyn Van, Canada Learning Code’s director of program design.

Although Canada Learning Code started in 2011, the workshop for K-12 teachers spawned in 2017. The first Calgary-based event was held on Feb. 17, 2018.
