6D Magistrula.com & Ars Computatralis

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The first part of this talk will cover the latest updates to Magistrula.com (a Latin-language learning website). These updates include printable worksheets, searchable practice records, new content for the Charts, Forms, & Sentences exercises, and new options for setting up exercises in precisely the way you want (e.g., limiting sentences only to nouns of particular declensions).

1) to demystify coding; it's just a thing that anyone can learn how to do if they're interested, and you don't have to learn all of it to make use of some of it
2) to give those who have never encountered code a low-impact introduction
3) to encourage and support those who might be interested in learning how to use code to create resources for the classroom
4) to promoto well-informed dialog about the place of coding in schools
