We live in a world surrounded by technology, and we know that whatever field our students choose to go into as adults, their ability to succeed will increasingly depend on understanding how Technology works. However, only 47% of all high schools teach computer science.
That’s why our entire school is joining in on the largest learning event in history: The Hour of Code ™ for Computer Science Education Week (December 7-13). More than 100 million students worldwide have already tried an Hour of Code, and ours is making a statement that Valley Central is ready to teach these foundational 21st-century skills.
To continue bringing programming activities to your students, we ask that you join us, as this is your chance to participate and learn. Activities are not limited to students only, so please feel free to give coding a try.
You can get started by joining this district-wide Computer Science Education Week Classroom, using the code 2ufyctc. (Remember, you must use a district account to access this page.) Lessons are available to everyone but have been organized by grade level and even include several UNPLUGGED coding activities that do not require any type of device.
If you have any questions, please leave a comment under the main post on the Google Classroom stream.
“The ‘Hour of Code™’/’Hora del Código®’ is a global initiative by Computer Science Education Week [csedweek.org] and Code.org [code.org] to introduce millions of students to one hour of computer science and computer programming.”
