Are you a public or school librarian thinking about starting a coding club in your library, but you’re not sure where to start? Then this class is for you!
Over four weeks we will cover everything from one-off events like Hour of Code to planning a weekly coding club, and all at little or no cost. Some of the programs we will explore are Scratch, Bitsbox, Code.org, as well as many other resources.
Other than general use of online tools and services and mobile devices, no specific technology background is assumed.
