“Stop consuming and start creating with technology.”
This week is the Hour of Code at East Noble School Corp and around the world. There are currently 50 million students signed up to participate worldwide in an event to teach students about coding (how computer software, smart cities, thermostats, email, anything electronic works). This is our second year of participating – we are officially signed up through code.org and each of our students will complete the hour of code challenge – they will also get to sign an award of completion to be displayed around our schools. This is a big event for students worldwide and it’s pretty cool that each of our students will get the opportunity to participate. There are close to 70,000 events worldwide.
Learning basic computer programming and problem solving skills will set our students apart now and in the future. Remember those newspaper articles about the White House and our district being Future Ready? This is a link to the code.org site if you would like to check it out. http://hourofcode.com/us
Check out the doc for an overview of what our students will be working on this week. https://docs.google.com/document/d/1ZihPE_1OEf5tJP_qzVToCyKtGdio5S57wqugzvxf00k/edit?usp=sharing
This is an opportunity for our students to be recognized for current and future work in early computer science.
