Coding. It is at its basic root a 4 letter word! But it doesn't have to be.
December 9-15 is Computer Science Education Week. Sign up to host an Hour of Code. There are self-guided video lessons that you can use with laptops, tablets, and smart phones. You can even use the Smartboard for whole group instruction if you prefer. No technology? No problem. There are lesson that you can use without computer access. I tried some of the lessons. They are really fun! Oh, Did I mention the first 100,000 educators who sign up to host an hour of code will receive 10GB of free DropBox storage?
Make sure you have a DropBox account before your sign up for the Hour of Code. So sign up to participate. No one is paying me to promote this. I just think that every student deserves at least 1 hour! Don't you?
