The last two years have been demanding and strenuous for teachers having to overcome many extraordinary challenges. While the world stopped during COVID, technology development and reliance did not, only adding to the challenges teachers face. Even schools are embracing these changes, for example, starting September 2022, coding will be mandatory from Grades 1-9 in the Ontario curriculum.

Canada Learning Code (CLC) is looking to remove barriers to success for teachers by providing them with the tools and resources they need to teach students computer science and build the essential digital skills required to succeed in the future. And this is being done via TeacherCon.

TeacherCon is a free multi-day conference hosted by CLC designed to help teachers with little-to-no coding experience teach coding fundamentals with confidence. It’s an opportunity to provide educators will the assets and tools they need to teach code the easy way as curriculums modernize across Canada. The three-day virtual conference, happening from August 9th to 11th, is filled with multiple workshops across different subjects, lesson plans, guidelines, and fun ways to introduce computer science into the classroom at any grade level using CLC-created materials and methods.
