Marina will be giving a keynote speech and hands-on KIBO training at a NYAS workshop called “Teaching Kids to Program with KIBO.” The workshop will be Wednesday, December 16, 2015 from 3:00 PM to 6:00 PM. From NYAS’ description of the workshop: “Educators from schools, after school programs, and summer camps will be hands-on with KIBOs to see how they can inform learning for 4-7 years olds in lessons that are creative, fun, and closely linked with activities found in these learning environments. KIBOs do not require computers or any other devices with a screen. As a result, youth learn through play!”
