Hour of Code & Computer Science Education Week
The week of December 4-8, 2017 is Computer Science Education Week, when schools around the world engage in Hour of Code. In my first few months at DCD, I am impressed to see that our teachers are celebrating computer science all year long. From Beebots & Kodable in the Primary School, to Minecraft & 3D printing in the Lower School, and digital arts & virtual reality in the Middle School. It is exciting to see computer science alive and well in our curriculum.
Even with computer science integrated throughout our curriculum, I have teachers asking for activities and conversations they can have to raise awareness around Computer Science Week and participate in the Hour of Code movement next week. So I have compiled a list of resources and activities into a Google Slides.
Tynker, Kodable, and Minecraft also have Hour of Code activities and resources on their websites that would be appropriate for elementary and middle school students. I hope that teachers will share their experiences with the school community next week!
How will you celebrate Computer Science Week this year?
