Hour of Code

Mrs. Larkin’s sixth grade class at Eastern Elementary participated in an “Hour of Code” on Wednesday, December 10th.The Hour of Code is a global movement reaching tens of millions of students in 180+ countries. Its goal is for tens of millions of students to try an Hour of Code during December 8-14-, 2014, in celebration of Computer Science Education Week. Introducing students to computer coding helps nurture problem-solving skills, logic, and creativity.  By starting early, students will have a foundation for success in any 21st-century career path.  Students learned the basics of drag and drop programming using a game-like “Angry Birds” activity.  This was a self-directed tutorial with a video introduction starring Bill Gates and Mark Zuckerberg.  Students had their first opportunity for each to use the new Chromebooks recently purchased by the school for classroom use.
