CSTA>>Philly is planning a meeting on February 28th (Saturday) at Temple University.   There will be 2 different "threads".   Harvey Scribner will be running his workshop for K-5? teachers.   In the other room, we will be discussing the Computer Science Principles course.    The price is right... (free).     Tell your colleagues about Harvey's fabulous workshop and plan to come with them to meet the folks from the local chapter of CSTA.

I took my kids to this in 2014 and it was simply spectacular!  I am willing to help support a booth if others will join me! http://www.usasciencefestival.org/

Just had my 1st K5 Affiliate training yesterday and it went really well!

Two quick questions that I could not answer yesterday...
1. What is the max number of students you can have in a section?
2. This one needs a little background info to explain. All of my students have accounts connected to username and passwords. Therefore when I start a new school year my students can remove themselves from last year's section and I can give them a new code so they can attach themselves to this year's section.  All of their progress is saved from year to year.  

However, say you you create a section for K students and the students sign in using a picture.  Then the following school year they are with a new 1st grade teacher and will be in a new section.  Does their information get saved from year to year?  Is there an easy way (like the code) to transfer those students to the new section? or do you have to change their picture password manually to a normal password? or do they just lose all their progress?

Thanks for the help!
Katie

Thought you might like to see how I create great "instant" websites for my class and other projects!

I love the two stickers that were in our bag. The hour of code and the move on that look like our programming blocks. Is there somewhere we can purchase those? Thanks.

Harvey, thanks for the wonderful session at BCCC.   One of the topics we discussed (members of the cohort) was use of chromebooks for 1:1 as compared to ipads.   I found this article that I thought might be useful.

Check it out and pass it out to anyone who completed the training.  I added a Table of Contents (request) for the Curriculum Guide and a Best Practices Living Document for fun!  I am also going to start monthly Google Hangout or Video Conference "Office Hours" to follow up with everyone!  If anyone is interested in booking a training for 2015-2016, let me know!  I am still trying to get to Jersey....Anyone Got Some Contacts there?
