Educators have more demands and less time these days to reach every student. In an ever-changing digital world, it can be difficult to stay up to date on the latest and greatest pedagogy.

The first in a series of online courses to come from Wonder Workshop, Introduction to Coding and Robotics with Dash & Dot contains six two-hour modules for teachers to complete at their own pace. Educators can dive into theory and practice new concepts with creative and reflective learning activities, all while connecting with a larger community of like-minded educators from across the country. Teachers may be able to apply the course towards PD hours or CEUs.
