Foster creativity, innovation, and perseverance while developing problem-solving and computational thinking skills with our youngest learners. In this session, we will explore a variety of ways that coding and robotics can be integrated into all areas of your early learning program. Learn how to create an environment for innovation and foster a lifelong love of learning while developing computational thinking skills throughout the K-3 learning environment.
Daphne McMenemy is an educator, author, and speaker. Her first book, Gracie, is based on her personal experiences in the
classroom. Gracie is a young girl whose learning is brought to life when her teacher introduces her to coding and a new
way of thinking. As a child and young adult, Daphne was focused on becoming an educator with a purpose, to improve the lives of her students and make an impact on their educational journey. As an educator for the past 15 years, she has created opportunities for children in her classroom to explore learning in innovative ways. Using STEM to engage children as young as kindergarten age in discovering learning through coding, she develops numeracy, literacy, and computational thinking skills through creative exploration. Her experience in the classroom has proven to support even the most hesitant learners in building confidence in their abilities and engaging in the learning process. Daphne is committed to building relationships, meeting students where they are, appreciating each individual, and finding opportunities to engage and motivate students in creative, innovative ways. Her newest venture allows her an extensive creative outlet as Managing Director of Code
