Hour of Code in Library

This Week is Computer Science Education Week, December 7-13. There is a movement nationwide to get students to try one hour of code. It’s much easier than it sounds!  

History of Hour of CodeMore than 100 million students have tried an Hour of Code. Last year, every Apple Store in the world hosted an Hour of Code and even President Obama wrote his first line of code as part of the campaign. This year, let's make it even bigger. I’m asking you to join in for the Hour of Code 2015. Please get involved with an Hour of Code event during Computer Science Education Week, December 7-13.

 Link: There is a link off the Student Resources Page called: CODE to make access easy at school or home. This takes you to, a site with lots of online coding games that the levels build. Great to have students use on chromebooks, laptops, lab or BYOD.

Coding in the Library:  In the Library this week and next ALL of the Gattis Students will have a chance to code!  Here are some of our Kinder students coding first think this morning with Kodable. If they can do it, you can do it!

Apps to try: If you have an ipad

·         Daisy the Dinosaur
·         Run Marco! (in Spanish too)
