Volunteer Hosts
Thanks for helping with Snap!Con 2021!

No materials for the event yet, sorry!

We all know Snap! is a powerful programming language and learning tool, but what more could be done to support new users in acclimating to the environment quickly so they can focus on learning programming? Join a panel of experienced Beauty and Joy of Computing (BJC) teachers in a constructive discussion about the top Snap! needs for improving the first few weeks of school. What improvements could be made to increase usability for students and to keep Snap! relevant in the growing landscape of introductory programming interfaces? What would make Snap! easier for new teachers to learn and implement in the classroom? Our panel will begin with a few words from the moderator before the panelists each give a five minute response to the topic, and then the discussion will open for all participants to contribute their ideas and share their experiences with Snap! and wishlists for supporting new Snap! users.
