4 Unplugged Classroom Activities for Hour of Code @codeorg #HourOfCode
Happy Hour of Code week! From Jacqui Murray at Teach Hub, here are four classroom activities for absolute beginners, from ages 4 – 17.
Hour of Code arrives December 3-9, 2018. This is a time when teachers show students why they should love – not fear – coding. Students find out that these classroom activities — often seen as geeky or impossible — aren’t. They’re actually fun. Every year in preparation for December, I post lots of coding classroom activities that students can complete with their computers, on the Internet, or using iPads, but this year, I want to do something different. Let’s go back to the roots of coding. The idea started as a clever way to teach students to think critically and problem-solve. The easiest way was to gamify coding, put students on a digital device they loved, and set them free. One hour, according to Hour of Code, would show them that deep thinking was fun and problem-solving was exhilarating.
