#transformlearning Tuesday!

Last Updated on Dec 22, 2015 at 2:21pm | Garrett County Public Schools

Happy ?#‎transformlearning? Tuesday!
Mrs. Lindsay Krisher's computer programming students at Southern Garrett High School put their coding skills to use in a recent collaborative project with Accident Elementary School. After brainstorming ways that they could use their coding skills to help others in the community, the Southern Garrett High School students decided to reach out to younger students in the county. They started by communicating with Mr. Zachary Krisher, a teacher at Accident Elementary, in order to find out what specific learning objectives his students were working on in class. Using that information, the programming students designed and created learning games that can be used in the classroom. These computer games were personalized to spark the interest of the students at Accident. The games teach skills such as skip counting, addition, fine motor skills, music literacy and money sense.
Both the computer programmers at Southern Garrett High School and the students at Accident Elementary benefited greatly from this experience.
Please watch the video below to see the collaboration in action.
