Not this year. They are coding!
We, like many around the country, participated in the Hour of Code in December 2013. We were even privileged with the opportunity to participate in a Tech Titan web chat with Susan Wojcicki, one of the senior VP's of Google. We have done coding before, but I was amazed at how quickly the kids took to the tutorials and lessons on the code.org website. Even after our lessons ended and we loved in to other skills, my students continued to go back to those activities whenever they had a free moment....even during the last few days of school.
So, kids....here's your summer assignment! Show me what you can do with the following Code-centric apps and sites. If you create something cool and amazing...share it with me! I'll be checking my email from beside the pool! Happy Summer!
