"I didn't know but now I do" Moment

Attending this code.org event was amazing but the wealth of resources, locally and BEYOND were worth it's weight in gold! Eight hours of professional development can be more valuable than money at times. This was one of those times!

Here's a few of resources that were shared that can literally change my landscape as an instructional technology specialist.

  • autodesk: resources that students, teachers and academic institutions worldwide are eligible to get for free*.  Yes, free. They state they genuinely believe in education!
  • LevelUpVillage: a wonderful GLOBAL organization that helps to link and teach STEM to students near and far with no out of pocket costs to the school!
  • Girls Develop It!:   a nonprofit organization that provides affordable programs for adult women interested in learning web and software development in a judgment-free environment.They have great Meet Ups planned for adults to learn how to code!
