Introduction to programming suitable for K-8 classroom teachers to use in subject content areas, such as mathematics, science, social studies, art, english language arts, and others. Participants will learn how to teach their students to program using the Etoys platform.

Participants will learn dynamic multimedia authoring using a tile-based object-oriented programming language to create games, puzzles, books, observations, simulations, modeling, and visualizations.
