Looking for a way to celebrate Computer Science Education Week (Dec. 7-13)? Why not check out the “Hour of Code?” It’s an effort to encourage teachers and students to spend an hour learning computer science.
|My Food Web Game (in progress)|
My students and I took part in Hour of Code by trying out Scratch. Scratch allows you to snap blocks of code together to create games, animations, simulations, etc. It was easy to learn, and a lot of fun. We also quickly learned that coding takes a lot of planning, and quality products definitely take longer than an hour. This introduction did however generate some interest and resulted in the creation of an extra-credit assignment.
