Hour of Code 2.0

Hour of Code week is next week and I’m so tremendously excited. I absolutely love seeing what the kids are able to do through their brief glimpse of coding. We have even have our Lower School acting troupe preparing a skit for the kick off (based on one of our apps.) We are committed to giving our kids an introductory experience with programming. Here’s more on Hour of Code.

This year, we will use iPad resources in K-4 as they have been met with wild success and interest. For more information on the resources we plan to use for our 2014 Hour of Code, check out our Tech Lab page on Haiku LMS or visit Hour of Code.

code.orgI also really love the Google Made w/ Code Project, especially the connection to the National Christmas Tree. I had a blast this morning playing the Frozen themed coding game on code.org. Here’s the bracelet I made last summer via Made w/ Code.

    I love the Hour of Code. My classes won’t all have easy access to computers next week as we will be having technology class in their rooms rather than in the computer lab due to quarterly testing. So we’re doing online code this week and offline Code next week. They love the new HoC activities on code.org
