Workshop Overview

This workshop is designed for educators interested in introducing coding to their students using TI-Nspire™ technology and the TI-Innovator™ Hub with TI LaunchPad™ Board.

Building upon the lessons from TI’s 10 Minutes of Code, the workshop introduces the basics of coding principles including logic, selection statements and loops. A focus will be on coding topics which will reinforce student understanding of math and science curriculum concepts. Participants should be comfortable with using TI-Basic and transferrable skills to move to the next stage in coding.

By the end of Day 1, participants will be comfortable with:

  • Starting a new program, writing a program to display text and running the program
  • Using global and local variables in a program and understanding the differences between global and local variables
  • Writing statements using IF and conditions
  • Using compound conditions with the relational and the logical operators
  • Determining errors in a program

Day 2 of the workshop will expand to more about coding using the TI-Innovator™ Hub with TI LaunchPad™ Board to further engage students in coding and STEM applications.

Building upon the lessons from TI’s 10 Minutes of Code for the TI-Innovator™ Hub, the workshop shows participants how to control the Hub and the built-in light and sound sensors. The coding applications covered will be connected to concepts in math and science.

During Day 2 of the workshop, participants will learn to:

  • Write programs that control the light, LED and sound devices on the Hub
  • Use loops to control color, color and sound
  • Use If … Then … Else … End statements to adjust the brightness level to affect output devices
  • Explore further functionality of the TI-Innovator™ Hub and of programming
