Bot Workshop – Coding As The New Literacy
Sunday 3 June 2018
9am & 11am
Young children are never too young to be introduced to coding and robotics! This interactive and hands-on workshop will provide young children with a unique opportunity to learn how to code through purposeful play. Coding is a new type of literacy for the 21st century that is logical and creative and it is important to teach this new literacy our youngest learners.

Professor Chris Walsh is the Academic Director of Victoria University (VU) Online and the Vice President of the Australian Literacy Educators’ Association (ALEA). Chris understands that for all young children to be successful in an economy being transformed by new technologies, they need a sound understanding of digital literacies, including coding literacies. This workshop provides a fun way to introduce young children in the early years and primary to coding and robotics, with and without technology.
