Coding and Programming is a great playlist activity, and there are many ways to implement it inside of your classroom.

The November i4 Technology Training

We all had a great time at the i4 "Dive Deep Into Blended Learning" training in November. Teachers got a chance to check out the latest gadgets that could be making their way into classrooms very soon. i4 teachers also got to sit in on some break-out sessions, and learn all about the digital playlist-maker, Blendspace. All in all it was a great training and fun to see everyone in i4 doing amazing things.
