My students in grades K through 5 once again participated in the Hour of Code week, an effort by the non-profit Code.org to promote computer science in the classroom. We used various apps and websites to explore the basics of computer programming, including Kodable, Hopscotch, Tynker (both web-based and the app version for iPad), and various tutorials from the code.org site (a favorite was the series of puzzles, Code With Anna and Elsa, which are based on Disney’s Frozen movie hit). It’s always great to watch the kids get excited and really into solving problems and creating animations. Read here about last year’s experience. Watch the video documenting this year’s fun and highlighting some of the skills learned.
