The Hour of Code
My students are participating in the Hour of Code this week. According to HourofCode.com, "The Hour of Code is a global movement reaching tens of millions of students in 180+ countries. Anyone, anywhere can organize an Hour of Code event. One-hour tutorials are available in over 30 languages. No experience needed.
I love watching my students problem solve and collaborate while coding. I often see a different side of them. Some students get so into the activities that they don't want to leave the library. What a magical and memorable moment!
