We love finding new resources and invite you to learn more with us!
In this hands-on professional learning workshop, you will learn to code in both TI-Basic and Python using Texas Instruments graphing calculators, allowing you to incorporate coding into your school and classroom. The session will begin with an overview of TI calculators, followed by learning to code on the calculator and then adding on the microcontroller, the TI-Innovator Hub.
The hub will collect data, which the calculator can analyze and then use to produce an output based on the code that you write in the session. The workshop will conclude with a demo of the TI-Innovator Rover and, time permitting, flying a drone using the python code and micro:bit technology. Throughout the session, participants will discuss the various ways that you can integrate the STEM solutions from Texas Instruments into your classroom and plan out how to get students into coding at the best pace for them.
You will also gain access to a plethora of free resources that Texas Instruments provides for users of the products as well as a YouTube channel that has over 90 videos on the ways to use the classroom solutions from Texas Instruments. Demo calculators will be available for attendees who do not bring their own.
