Hosting a Shark Tank with Kids
Students can program apps. They can pitch their ideas. They can handle defending their dreams. Students can code. Students can create. Those who think students can’t do these things either haven’t tried or have a limited view of themselves as educators.
Tomorrow I’m taking three teams of kids up to the National Ed Tech Developer Tour Event up in Atlanta, Georgia. (A few more tickets might be available.) The trailers of the three teams are shown below.
So, now, we level up. I’m excited for them and our school and look forward to the event tomorrow night. Because it may be called a “Shark Tank” but I see nothing but encouragement and support for these kids.
One other exciting note — half of those traveling with me are girls! I see no difference in the success of boys or girls as we program! They may have different apps, but they thrive as they use technology.
