This year the featured activity on code.org is all about dancing! Let's have fun.
2015 Hour of Code is Approaching!
2014 - 2015 Coding Highlights
2014 Hour of Code a huge success
Last week every student took part in the international movement, Hour of Code. Through the site, Code.org, students worked collaboratively to learn computer science. We used iPads, the Smartboard, the computer lab and our Chromebooks to take our learning to the next level. If your student is interested in continuing their studies, I encourage them to create an account at code.org and work through the 20 hour courses for beginners found at http://studio.code.org/.
STEAM - Science Tech Engineering Arts Math
This year we are working on computer coding as it relates to multiple subjects. To support this, we have used an activity called The Artist on www.studio.code.org The students worked through 10 levels, ultimately allowing students to create their own art programs. At level 9 they learned how to make art using a series of hexagons. We then broke down the code into stages and they were invited to change the main shape. Here is a screenshot of the code that we made after we altered the original function code to be a circle.
