2019 AASL National Conference

Picture Books and Problem Solving: The Coding Connection

Nov 15, 2019 10:30am ‐ Nov 15, 2019 11:30am

Credits: None available.

Standard: $6.99
Members: $0.00


Can picture books teach coding concepts? Absolutely! In this session, we will take a look at multiple picture books that provide a segue into coding. Participants will explore hands-on unplugged coding for beginners (students AND teachers). Sequencing, stacks and queues, conditionals and events are just a few coding concepts that can be introduced through picture books. After introducing young coders to basic coding concepts, extend their coding knowledge with CodeSpark Academy and The Foos!

Learning Objective:
  • Learners will construct new knowledge by reflecting on picture book themes and relate the book's theme to coding concepts.
