Parents are requesting more teaching of coding and digital literacy, but how do you fit it into the curriculum when there are so many other things to cover? Scientifically developed and aligned with ISTE standards, come explore a global organization that is a fine example of this integration. FUNecole demonstrates one strategy how elementary schools, grades 1-6, can scaffold the use of digital skills embedded into activities that are anchored in real-world contexts and situations.
