Code.org's Hour of Code is December 4th through 10th this year--making this the 11th year of highlighting that anyone can learn to code. Now a global movement across 180 countries, Hour of Code inspires people of all ages to take on some coding activities for at least an hour. In my K-5th grade tech classes, we'll all be coding this week!
Looking for some ways to host your own Hour of Code, check out these activities:
- Hour of Code's Library of Activities -- You can filter by activity, device, age, and more.
- Create & Learn's Hour of Code Free Activities -- Curriculum is designed by Google, Stanford, MIT and more.
- Tie it in with your librarian using Shannon McClintock Miller's idea of linking library books about coding from her blog The Library Voice. I was fortunate enough to take a FETC workshop from Shannon years ago. She's a phenomenal edtech educator, leader, and author and I love this tie in between classes.
