Have you heard about the Hour of Code and wondered what it was all about? Or maybe you doubted that you and your students could participate. Hour of Code started in 2013, with the goal of having 100,000 students participate in 1 hour of coding activities. Currently they reach tens of millions of students worldwide with tutorials in over 40 languages. Although the Hour of Code has a promoted week each year, this resource can be used year round.

Join Brenda Hauff as she discusses Hour of Code and explains how you can use it with your students. She will share an amazing free curriculum resource that allows students at all levels to code and provide tips for using it in your classroom. Brenda will show that you do NOT need to know programming to help your students. You will learn right alongside them, with all of the support you need in the curriculum.

This was a thorough tour through the Hour of Code website. After viewing this, I think any teacher, no matter how many or how few computers are available in the classroom, would be able to begin an Hour of Code initiative in his or her school. Thanks!

Coding is a powerful tool teach your students about resiliency and perseverance as it relates to complex subject matter. Students tend to struggle with this, but if the teacher is there with their journey of trying to tackle this it makes it enjoyable to all. I experienced this first hand with my students. It was truly a journey that we both embarked on.
