The Hour of Code
I have written before about coding. The Scratch program is what really got me started a few years go. My students love Scratch and they don't realize how much they are thinking whey they do it. I love it when I secretly make them think! Scratch could actually be used as a digital storytelling tool in any subject area. This week, my students will be programming along with students around the world.
This week is the HOUR OF CODE. The goal: to get millions of students around the world to code, and to demystify the stigma of coding being for the ultra-brilliants of our society. I will be the first to admit that moving from Scratch to creating iPhone apps is a bit of a jump, but any exposure is worth it, and any thinking is good. Happy coding!
