When "Computer Coding" and "App Development" entered the common lexicon, educators tended to react with either fear or enthusiasm. Now that we are *here*-- immersed in the renewed curriculum, and with an understanding of incorporating Coding into it...authentically... with concerns swirling around regarding screen time and automatons vs critical thinkers, how can coding be included and alleviate the angst? Join me for a fun-filled and active hour of coding-- with no screens, no devices, barely even any electricity. Activities and resources you can use in your classroom tomorrow-- that teach coding from the perspective of Challenge Based learning and problem solving.  Suitable for all grades k-12, and staff professional development.
