As educators, we strive to help our students understand the world around them. This week, during Computer Science Education Week, Code.org is sponsoring an Hour of Code where students will gain a basic understanding of the underlying software that drives our modern world. Through STEM education, the development of critical thinking skills and hands-on programs like Code.org, we hope to change our students from simple consumers of technology to empowered innovators and makers.
Code.org and the Hour of Code emphasize the transformative power of developing computer software, both in the changes a useful program can make in people’s lives and the self-confidence that comes to a student from successfully completing such a project.
Stop by DENvice this week where we will highlight the Hour of Code, share additional resources, and sample lessons to help you engage your students to make a difference in the world. To learn more, visit www.facebook.com/DENvice
