Code to Learn – Community and Curriculum Leader (TIG)- 2018 to present
I’m a Community and Curriculum Lead with Taking IT Global and LCSI’s Code To Learn Program. LCSI was founded by Seymour Papert, and continues his legacy of creative programming languages for children.
Code To Learn is funded by the CanCode initiative of the Canadian government and is in the process of an application for a 3rd round of funding so stay tuned! We offer free resources to Canadian students and teachers to help them acquire coding, robotics, and computational thinking skills—while developing global competencies.
Code To Learn uniquely serves Indigenous communities as the application has been translated into the following Indigenous languages as well as Canadian English and French: Oji-Cree, Anishnaabe, Mi’kmaw, and Kanien’kéha (Mohawk).
