Coding in New Math Curriculum

The new Mathematics Curriculum of Ontario now contains expectations related to coding. There are many reasons why coding is important for our students. To name a few, coding provides an outlet for students to leverage technology to solve relevant problems in their community, a pathway for nurturing digital discipleship, and context for developing various global competencies needed to thrive in the modern workplace.  

On February 1, 2021, professional learning will be provided to YCDSB teachers so they can continue to familiarize themselves with the continuum of coding expectations from Grades 1 to 8 and explore innovative ways of leveraging this new curriculum to provide enriching, unplugged and technology-driven coding experiences to students.
