The CreationCamp program teaches students all of the Ontario coding expectations relevant to the classroom grade level. The sessions are live & virtual. In the sessions, professional creators (App developers, engineers & game-developers) working in the software industry, will teach students how to code applications, computer games & prototypes of real world technological innovations.

 

The program aims to introduce students to various engaging career pathways that utilize coding in their day to day professions. The CreationCamp program's pedagogical approach is centered around project based learning, 21st century skills and global competencies. Students will learn design thinking frameworks, entrepreneurial mindset, growth mindset and many other skills. Students will be brought through the experiential learning framework to build out their very own computer games and applications. 

Learning Outcomes

Coding C3.1 - Solve problems and create computational representations of mathematical situations by writing and executing efficient code, including code that involves events influenced by a defined count and/or sub-program and other control structures.

Coding C3.2 - Read and alter existing code involving the analysis of data in order to inform and communicate decisions, and describe how changes to the code affect the outcomes and the efficiency of the code.

Social Emotional Learning A1. - apply, to the best of their ability, a variety of social-emotional learning skills to support their use of the mathematical processes and their learning in connection with the expectations in the other five strands of the mathematics curriculum.
